Airport Recycling Program

Sea-Tac Airport's Waste Reduction and Recycling Programs manage services, provide outreach, and coordinate with airport staff, tenants, and business partners to reduce airport solid waste generation and minimize contributions to landfill. We strive to maximize diversion of recoverable materials while maintaining compliance with applicable federal, state, and local waste regulations. In 2009, we set a goal to recycle 50 percent of solid waste generated at airport operated facilities by 2014.

Inside the airport terminal, passengers have access to recycling bins in concourses, at security checkpoints, and in food court areas. Food and beverage and retail businesses recycle and compost a wide range of pre-consumer materials, and airlines recycle deplaned waste. For more information about airport recycling and a complete list of recycled materials programs, please email Airport Environmental or call (206) 787-5525.
