SAN FRANCISCO Effective Aug. 20, single-use bottled water will be banned from San Francisco Airport.
As part of the Zero Waste Concessions Program, bottled water in plastic or aseptic paper containers of 1-liter size or less will no longer be permitted to be sold or provided at the airport. The airport is encouraging travelers to tap into the nearly 100 hydration stations where passengers can fill up their reusable/refillable bottles with Bay Area tap water.
The ban does not include soft drinks, teas or juices. Bottled water in recyclable aluminum cans, glass or compostable materials will be permitted. Because TSA restricts liquids in containers of more than 3 ounces, passengers will not be able to bring the banned containers into the security area of the airport.
