The Airport Authority seeks to reduce landfill waste and increase recycling and waste diversion by airport employees and passengers. In 2013, our overall diversion rate of materials away from landfill remained at 38 per cent, consistent with the 2012 rate.
Diverted materials include:
- Paper and cardboard
- Glass, metal and plastic mixed containers
- Organic waste
- Electronic waste
- Wooden Pallets
- Construction waste and metals
- Used lighting products
- Hazardous materials such as oil and antifreeze
- Landscape materials
- Sweeper debris.
