Iberia establishes recycling centre near Madrid Airport.


Spanish carrier Iberia on Friday announced that with the CESPA CONTEN S.S company has implemented a new solid waste management system at its Madrid installations and a new system for managing hazardous waste at all Spanish airports.

Data for 2011 is expected to show that the carrier has managed to recycle approximately 50% of all solid waste produced by its operations this year and is intended to help the carrier reach its "zero solid waste" target within the next few years.

In line with these plans the carrier has also established a recycling centre on its La Munoza industrial and aircraft maintenance site near Madrid-Barajas Airport, which is expected to contribute to the recycling of some 160 tonnes of waste each year which was previously sent to landfills.
