We introduced the green Containers for Change bins in 2021 at the Domestic Terminal for passengers to recycle cans and bottles, with collection locations increasing over the years to include the International Terminal and Skygate precincts. All recycling proceeds are currently being donated to Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee (B4C). B4C works tirelessly to protect, restore and maintain the environment of the Bulimba Creek catchment.
The Oscar smart recycling assistant is now in operation at the Domestic Terminal and Skygate, helping our passengers and customers to boost recycling through gamification. We were the first airport in Australia to implement these smart, touch-free artificial intelligence waste stations, with the aim of increasing the amount of waste diverted from landfill and providing public education regarding waste reduction.
