We are responsible for the management and disposal of municipal waste from Greater Manchester (Formerly known as Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority). We handle around 4% of the UKs municipal waste. This is approximately 1.1 million tonnes of waste and recycling each year from over a million households from the metropolitan districts of Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford. (Wigan operate as a unitary authority and administers its own disposal arrangements).
We have a network of waste management facilities in Greater Manchester, this includes:
We also manage 2 education centres, a solar farm and 4 closed landfill sites.
In support of these aims, communications and behavioural change campaigns are delivered under our public facing brand, Recycle for Greater Manchester. We work in partnership with local councils, WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) and other stakeholder organisations.
