TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Synthesis 92: Airport Waste Management and Recycling Practices.

This webinar will discuss strategies that airports are implementing to reduce waste. Practicing sustainable waste management at an airport can reduce environmental impacts, conserve natural and financial resources, and provide social benefits for the community. In recent years, the airport industry has established a baseline of effective recycling activities and is now exploring new strategies for rescuing food, reducing waste generation at the source, and increasing diversion of other materials from landfills. The presenters will highlight specific programs in action at facilities across the country. 

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into to view registration information.
