Mead & Hunt Drafts New Recycling Plan for Tulsa International Airport

The 20-year plan is mostly based on 2014 data and predicts 890 tons of waste will be generated in an average year.

Mead & Hunt, a Middleton, Wis.-based consulting firm, has drafted a master plan of improvements for the Tulsa International Airport in Oklahoma, which includes a 73-page recycling section. The 20-year plan is mostly based on 2014 data and predicts 890 tons of waste will be generated in an average year. Out of that total, 3 percent will be recycled, 21 percent will be sent to landfill and 75 percent will be sent to energy-from-waste facilities.

TulsaWorld.com has information:

There are 290 trash cans and 34 recycling bins in the terminal building at Tulsa International Airport, each carefully plotted on color-coded drawings, along with trash bins in restrooms to handle the 1,000 miles of paper towels used each year.

The details are part of the 73-page recycling section of a draft master plan prepared by Mead & Hunt, a Middleton, Wisconsin-based consulting firm, for the Tulsa Airports Improvement Trust at a cost of $828,300 with a 90 percent grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.
