We are working with businesses and organisations to get everyone working and living in Greater Manchester to recycle more and waste less.

With our engagement activities, we have provided staff with:

  • Ideas on how they can save money and reduce their food waste
  • Information on what happens to their recycling
  • Information on how their general waste is turned into electricity
  • A free recycling guide
  • Useful and reusable giveaways

We deliver the following free staff engagement options:
