About Us

We are England’s largest Waste Disposal Authority and provide a world class environmentally sustainable solution for Greater Manchester’s waste


We are responsible for dealing with the 1.1 million tonnes of waste produced each year, from the 1,017,000 households and resident population of over 2.42 million (AGMA 2015) in Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford. This waste comes from council household waste collections and 20 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) provided and serviced by the Authority. We handle around 4% of England's Municipal waste.
