Q: I am a Lahaina business owner and also work for one of the global hospitality leaders. A few months ago, I took a trip to the Mainland. My travels included stops at the St. Louis, Denver, Eugene, Ore., and San Francisco airports. I try to stay hydrated and usually purchase several bottles of water at the airports. In every airport I visited there were a number of accessible containers for recycling bottles and newspapers. To my dismay, when I returned home to Maui I couldn't find one receptacle to recycle my plastic bottles. I found this nearly impossible to believe since we are such a global destination and wanting to become more "green." Is there anything you can do to provide this important feature in our airport?
