The ANA Group operates approximately 5,100 vehicles in Japan. Many of these are specialized vehicles and their disposal involves various challenges such as logistics.
To properly dispose of such vehicles at the end of their service lives, the ANA Group established a nationwide network that is compliant with Japan's Waste Management Law and the Act on Recycling Measures of End-of-Life Vehicles, which was enacted in April 2005.
The network selects reliable logistics companies and disposal factories in the Hokkaido, Tohoku/Kanto, Hokuriku, Kansai/Chubu, Chugoku, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa regions to properly and efficiently dispose of vehicles used at airports in each region.
Through this network, 93 vehicles that had been used at airports nationwide were disposed of in accordance with the Waste Management Law during the 2014 fiscal year. These vehicles provided approximately 423 tons of scrap metal for recycling.
