Recycle. Get Recognized. Repeat.

For the 10th time in the last 12 years, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority was named “Recycler of the Year” by the City of San Diego.

The City’s Environmental Services Department presented the award last April during a ceremony at 32nd Street Naval Base as part of the 22nd Annual Waste Reduction and Diversion Awards, which recognize innovative and successful waste reduction, recycling and recycled product purchasing programs.

The Airport Authority earned the award for its continually improving waste reduction and recycling program at SAN, which diverted about 1,053 tons of material from local landfills.

The City noted that the Airport Authority strives to model best practices for airports across the country and other organizations locally.

SAN has received the “Recycler of the Year” award every year since 2003, except for 2005 and 2006.
