Hyderabad Airport Becomes First in India to Install Recycling Machines for Garbage

In a way to tackle the amount of trash discarded in airports, Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) has begun installing water recycling machines.

The Hyderabad airport is one of the busiest airports in India and has a daily crowd of around 40,000 passengers and a staff of 5,000 working each day. The amount of trash they produce, and particularly the bottles, can only be calculated in estimation.

These newly installed machines will help crush not only PET bottles but also aluminium or tin cans and plastic bags in an eco-friendly way. Currently, two such machines are installed in strategic locations at the airport.

The airport’s programme called #PassengerisPrime prompted the authorities to install these machines that will help recycle bottles and bags.
