Materials Recovery

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.
