Our circular approach to reduce waste
We collect waste from around 2,000 bins across the airport every day. This covers our terminals, offices and car parks.
We aim to reuse or recycle most of it, convert the rest into energy – and send zero to landfill.

Towards Zero Waste
Our goal to 2030
By 2030, we aim to repurpose all materials used at Gatwick for beneficial use.
This forms part of our sustainability policy - our Decade of Change.
This includes recycling operational, commercial and construction waste.
Donating items no longer in use. In 2020, we donated over 100 laptops to local schools to support home schooling.
Convert waste to fuel for heating and transport, including at our onsite biomass boiler.
recycling liquids at Security
We work with our airport partners DHL and Sweeptech to collect, separate and recycle both the containers and the aqueous liquids from the over-sized liquids that passengers turn in at Security.
