Good practices

Barcelona-El Prat airport encourages its employees, the contractors and the concession holders to minimise and separate the waste produced.

Barcelona-El Prat airport is committed to recycling its waste instead of disposal in tips. The Environment Department maintains a collection infrastructure and service designed to obtain optimum recycling indices: points of selective collection in areas close to the generation (passenger terminal, commercial zone, offices, warehouses and airside and landside roads), two storage and classification centres for waste disposable as municipal waste in the logistics plant, a temporary hazardous and non-hazardous waste transfer plant (open to all the companies that work in the airport) and daily monitoring (in situ) of the separation practices in the commercial and catering zones.
