Frankfurt Airport supports charities – bottle return machine with donation option installed

Frankfurt Airport supports charities – bottle return machine with donation option installed ( Aviation security regulations require passengers to dispose of their liquids containers at the security checkpoint. Thus, all bottles and cans – valuable recyclable material – end up in the garbage. Furthermore, the deposit charged on the containers, as required by law, is equally lost. To remedy the situation, Frankfurt Airport has now installed a bottle return machine in Terminal 1 Departures, offering passengers a convenient way to dispose of their bottles and cans. This is environmentally conscious and, at the same time, supports international and local charities. Thanks to a special feature of this custom-made machine, the full deposit fee is donated to four non-profit organizations.

As an internationally known organization the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature, featuring the Panda symbol, is one option. By clicking on the LOG (Luftfahrt ohne Grenzen – Aviation Without Borders) logo, passengers support this relief organization. In addition to material donations, LOG organizes and coordinates the transport of people and humanitarian aid by air. Passengers who prefer to support charities in the Frankfurt region may decide for the Frankfurter Tafel, an organization donating food to the needy, or the Franziskustreff, a Frankfurt-based fund for the homeless. If no choice is made, the donation automatically goes to the WWF.

The bottle return machine is very well received by passengers. Should the feedback continue to develop positively, the return system will be installed at other locations throughout Frankfurt Airport.

In 2012, Frankfurt Airport welcomed more than 57 million passengers. To find out more about Frankfurt Airport go to .
