In 2016, Wilmot joined the Metro Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) Sustainability team to complete a Sustainability Plan Update. Current Waste Management practices at the airport were evaluated using a 2012 MNAA sustainability study as a baseline. Wilmot found that BNA had nearly doubled their recycling rate since 2012, with 395 out of 2,872 tons of waste recycled between June 2016 and 2017. The Team used these findings to provide specific recommendations to the MNAA for further improvement. Additionally, Wilmot applied local knowledge to identify partnerships and sustainability strategies through state and local funding sources.
