MarkDuebner-liquidcollection091219As part of our efforts to enhance the passenger experience and promote environmental sustainability, Dallas Love Field launched a new liquid collection station. The station will allow passengers to empty and recycle their bottles before entering the TSA Security Checkpoint.

During a recent waste audit, DOA's Environmental Division found that more than 60 percent (by weight) of total waste in the TSA zone was liquid. This liquid contaminates other recyclable material, meaning the material is no longer recyclable and must go to the landfill.
