Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport recently launched its new
recycling program, GreenSortATL, in 2009. Our goal is for GreenSortATL to become
one of the largest such programs in the Southeast and to make Hartsfield-Jackson
as green as any airport in the nation.
About the program
GreenSortATL eliminates the need for separate recycling containers. All waste
generated by passengers, employees, and businesses goes into the same container.
Receptacles throughout the Airport have been labeled with the GreenSortATL
logo and slogan: “You Trash. We Sort. It’s Recycled.” By doing all the sorting
and recycling on the back end, this program enhances customer service by
simplifying the trash disposal process for busy passengers and other stakeholders.
