Who we work with

In 2003, around 85% of our waste went to landfill, and only 7% was recycled. Today we are achieving far more. By working closely with our nine District Councils, our contractor, partner organisations and the residents of Greater Manchester, we are recycling 47%, and our diversion rate is an impressive 89%.  There’s still more to do, and it is only by working together can we achieve our aim of zero waste for Greater Manchester.
