Jak se nakládá s odpadem na athénském letišti?


Waste Management Athens International Airport (AIA) is responsible for the waste handling on Airport Site. AIA generates different types of waste: Residual waste Recyclable waste Hazardous waste Medical waste Therefore, it has developed a comprehensive waste management system, which is based on the polluter-pays-principle. The waste management includes the following three main activities: 1. Waste handling on Airport Site Waste collection, transportation of all waste and provision of bin/container equipment is performed by AIA's waste contractor, Lobbe Tzilalis. Waste bins and containers are located adjacent to the areas of waste production. The waste contractor operates the Waste Temporary Storage Area that includes office buildings, a weighing bridge, manoeuvring area, temporary storage of waste containers, parking for waste transportation vehicles, storage area for waste bin/container equipment and a bin/container washing facility. The residual waste collection vehicle is equipped with an on-board-weighing-system. This computerised system records the weight of the residual waste by picking up the waste bins on site. All data are registered in a database that is a useful tool for waste billing of the waste producers. Regular waste site inspections 2. Billing of waste producers Since AIA's waste management system is based on the polluter-pays-principles, Third Parties are charged for waste production. AIA implements a waste accounting system that delivers detailed waste data from each waste producer and allows the fair distribution of waste management's operational costs. Waste charges are based on the weight of waste (price per ton) and depend on the type of waste. Waste billing of the waste producers takes place once a month. 3. Measures to minimise waste production AIA has implemented recycling programs for paper, plastic, glass, aluminium cans, wood, used tires, household batteries and electronic waste. § Application of the polluter pays principle, which provides recycling incentives to Third Parties especially in combination with a price policy. The implementation of the policy of “0” charges for paper in the beginning of 2002 led to a significant increase - from 174 tons (3%) in 2001 to 575 tons (7%) in 2003 - of the separated paper waste amount and cost savings for Third Parties. Due to this success, AIA extended the “0” charges policy to all other recyclables, such as plastic, glass, aluminium cans, scrap ferrous, used tires and wood (2004).
