Boston Logan Recycles
Recycling bins are located throughout Boston Logan International Airport including recycling barrels for bottles and cans at the entrances to all security checkpoints.
The airport’s single-stream recycling dumpsters collect all recyclable paper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, and glass. In April 2009, Delta Airlines began an in-flight recycling program in Boston, recycling paper, plastic and aluminum from all of its flights that land at Boston Logan. US Airways is also recycling paper on flights that end at Logan.

Recycling bins are located at Piers Park, Bremen Street Park, and Al Festa Field in East Boston as well as South Boston Maritime Park in the Seaport District.
