[GreenYes] Re: Atlanta Airport Recycling?

Anne -

Did any of your research uncover any good food scraps recovery and/or composting programs associated with major airports? I've got pictures of food scraps collection bins at the Mexico City Airport, but have yet to see anything like this in the US. At one time I believe LAX was collecting its food scraps and I think Prtland may also (though it may be just from the "back of the house"?

Does anyone know of any good examples of food scraps collection and composting from airports?

Any info appreciated.

I can't answer your specific question but my firm did an extensive integrated solid waste management plan for Denver International Airport last year. Some of our foundational research benchmarked 4 airports' waste mgmt programs. NRDC did a really interesting study of airports & recycling recently too. Let me know if you'd like information.

I saw a plenitude of waste containers every 20 feet or so, but did not notice any recycling bins whatsoever.  (Not to say for sure that there were none, but I sure didn't see any.)  The waste containers automatically compact the garbage — I was quite startled when I put my lunch garbage in the container and it started to growl!

I’m working on a recycling project at the Philadelphia International Airport. I’m just curious, for those of you at the NRC conference, how was the recycling program at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport?

For what it’s worth, does anyone have contact info for the folks running that program?

Thanks for the help...
