Recycling


In 2006, the Clark County Department of Aviation began a green transformation by focusing on more natural ways to do business. The first step was the formation of an Environmental Conservation Committee, which has blossomed to a 17-member group representing a cross-section of the department. Charged with tracking current sustainability efforts, the group works to assess innovative ways the airport and its employees can team up to reduce, reuse and recycle materials used at McCarran International Airport.

McCarran's employees, tenants and customers generate approximately 14,300 tons of garbage each year, much of which includes recyclables like paper, plastic and aluminum. The department is making strides to create a more-comprehensive recycling plan, like the inception of a first-ever airport terminal recycling program that lets customers recycle their plastic, paper and aluminum products.
Learn more about those efforts and other ways we’ve transformed to a brighter shade of green.
