About Recycle for Greater Manchester

Recycle for Greater Manchester

We encourage and support the people of Greater Manchester to recycle right and think about what we throw away.

We work with local councils in Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford to improve the quality and quantity of recycling collected and processed. We aim to encourage residents to waste less and recycle correctly through delivering clear and creative communications and campaigns through our Recycle for Greater Manchester brand.

As part of our Behavioural Change & Communication Strategy 2017-2022 we aim to:

Reduce contamination in residents’ recycling bins

• By using WasteDataFlow and Waste Collection Authority data sources to target intervention campaigns in areas of high contamination
• By delivering a programme of Greater Manchester wide campaigns focusing on educating residents and eradicating confusion over what items can be recycled in our four bin waste stream system

Increase food waste recycling

• By using Waste Data Flow and Waste Collection Authority data to target intervention campaigns in areas of low participation
• By delivering a programme of Greater Manchester wide campaigns focusing on educating residents and eradicating confusion over what items can be recycled within our 4 bin waste stream system
• By developing partnerships and initiatives within Greater Manchester to promote food waste recycling

Promote waste minimisation

• By influencing and, where appropriate, link with national campaigns
• By delivering a programme of campaigns to promote waste prevention/minimisation
• By developing partnerships and initiatives within Greater Manchester to promote food waste recycling
