Qantas has announced that it has formed a new partnership with Closed Loop Recycling which will see the airline introduce onboard recycling on its domestic flights.
“Under the new initiative we plan to recycle approximately eight and a half million bottles, cups, tumblers and cans per year from domestic services,” said CEO Alan Joyce. “The inflight recycling program also complements established recycling programs in selected Qantas Clubs in Australia for paper, cardboard and glass.”
Joyce added that the program adds to the Qantas Group’s goal of reducing landfill by 25 per cent by 2011, and reflects its commitment to sustainability.
