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

Important information about building and DIY waste

Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote. If you are recycling or disposing of business waste, visit the business waste page.
