As England’s largest Waste Disposal Authority, we will do everything we can to save resources, ensuring that as much waste as possible is recycled or used for energy recovery.
Since 2009, we have created 43 waste management and recycling facilities. These facilities deal with over 1.1 million tonnes of waste collected each year from over 1 million households in Bury, Bolton, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford.
The recycling rate for waste from households in Greater Manchester in 2017/18 was 47%.
