Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport has revealed plans to launch a Recycle Zone scheme, which is supported by Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) and Recoup, at its terminals.
To encourage passengers to recycle bottles, cans, paper and card as they travel through the airport, 16 recycling collections will be placed around the terminal.
CCE recycling director Patrick McGuirk said: “We are committed to reducing the impact of our packaging, and increasing public options for recycling is key for this. We know that many of our products are consumed ‘on-the-go’, and so our goal is to provide convenient recycling solutions to make the process easier for consumers.”
Research from a 2010 survey conducted by CCE found 89% of people in the North West of England believe it is important to make ‘on-the-go’ recycling facilities accessible, so CCE expects the scheme will be well-received.
