Key Personnel

Together with the Clerk to the Authority, GMWDA is made up of a small team who alongside its 21 members are responsible for leading the Authority in the delivery of its aims and objectives as set out in the Waste Management Strategy.

By working with our partners and the residents of Greater Manchester we are doing everything we can to waste less and recycle more.

We envisage a society for Greater Manchester where all our resources are recycled or the energy is recovered, and nothing is wasted – put simply our aim is zero waste.
