Report: Airline recycling in ‘sorry state’

Here’s another article about airline trash. Green America, a environmental nonprofit, just found that most American airlines do little recycling, blaming airports’ lack of facilities. Delta and Virgin do best, earning B-‘s. United and US Airways both get F’s. An average passenger leaves behind 1.3 pounds of trash, of which 20% is recyclable. Enough aluminum cans are tossed to build 58 new Boing 747s. European airlines do better. You can help by recycling your own cans, bottles, and newspapers.
