Recycling, of course, is a central part of Terminal 2's eco-friendly efforts. SFO is requiring all food vendors to use biodegradable tableware and separate all food service for recycling or compost. By 2020, SFO plans to recycle 90 percent of its waste.
The recycling efforts even started with Terminal 2's construction. By using an existing building, the airport said it was able to reduce 12,300 tons of carbon dioxide. Also, the project's contractors recycled 90 percent of construction and demolition debris.
