We will do everything we can to save resources (by preventing waste at source and recycling more) and to produce green energy. We will aim to not landfill anything that we can use.
As England’s largest Waste Disposal Authority, we will do everything we can to save resources, ensuring that as much waste as possible is recycled or used to produce green energy.
Since 2009, we have created 43 waste management and recycling facilities. These facilities deal with over 1.1 million tonnes of waste collected each year from over 1 million households in Bury, Bolton, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford.
We see waste as a valuable resource and are committed to recycling and diverting as much waste as possible from landfill. By 2018 we want, with the help of our residents and partners, to be recycling well over 50% and diverting at least 85% of waste from landfill.
Together we can get there.
