FAQ n.115292

Where can I throw away a used face mask?

Answer

Airports and airlines have been asked to instruct passengers on the safe disposal of used medical face masks: for example through no-touch bins and single-use waste bags. Please look for specific information on this during your journey.

Although medical face masks may contain plastic fibers or paper, they are not recyclable.
