U.S. carriers this year will produce more than 7,000 tons of recyclable aluminum and plastic, mainly in the form of beverage cans and glasses, most of which will not be recycled, a consultancy Greenskies says. By 2013, U.S. carriers will fly 800 million passengers per year and will generate 8,500 tons of recyclable waste.
