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. Our objective is 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% of solid waste generated at airport operated facilities by 2014. Our Environmental Strategy Plan identifies specific strategies that will help us achieve that goal.
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.
