Supporting Materials, Case Examples, and Toolkits for ACRP Synthesis 92: Airport Waste Management and Recycling Practices


The focus of this synthesis was on airport waste management and recycling practices that reduce impacts and costs to airports and their surrounding communities. Information used in this study was acquired through a literature review, survey results from 35 organizations representing 36 airports from a range of geographic locations and airport classifications, and interviews of a subset of 21 airport waste management experts.

Results of the literature review and survey are presented in this short report available at the following URL: The online appendices listed on this webpage include survey results, case examples representing in-depth interviews on specific airport waste management and recycling practices, and toolkits of existing effective practices to assist airports in implementing their waste management and recycling programs.

This synthesis records the practices that were acceptable within the limitations of the knowledge available at the time of its preparation. As progress in research and practice continues, new knowledge will be added to that now at hand.
