Green Gateway

THE PORT of Seattle is continuing its efforts as the “Green Gateway” with the introduction of a centralised off-aircraft recycling system that will reduce waste sent to landfills, improve apron safety, decrease air emissions, and save more than $250,000 each year at its Seattle Tacoma International Airport.  Six pairs of large-capacity computer-monitored compactors have been installed at convenient locations for all airlines to access.  Previously, airlines coordinated their own rubbish collection.
