Implementing a full stream recycling program — one that separates all trash — is a critical step toward achieving zero waste
at an airport. At Hartsfield-Jackson
International, we are taking the next
steps to expand our program to ensure
that more recyclables are recovered,
more types of materials are reused,
and waste is dealt with efficiently.
SINGLE STREAM VS.
FULL STREAM RECYCLING
There is a negative connotation that
comes with the term Dirty Materials
Recovery Facility, or Dirty MRF,
which implies that the materials
recovered are too contaminated and,
therefore, lose value as a result.
