Resource Greater Manchester Programme

The Resource Greater Manchester (RGM) partnership will provide a strategic programme of work to help Greater Manchester achieve its ambitions towards zero waste

Working with WRAP we will be looking at new and innovative ways to increase recycling and reduce waste across Greater Manchester.

Aim –  To increase household recycling across Greater Manchester to 60% by 2025 and reduce household residual waste to 400kg per household


  • Increasing the capture of food

  • Improving the quality of recyclates (dry and food and garden)

  • Maximising the impact of partnership working with the nine district councils

  • Driving efficiency savings across the partnership

  • Providing opportunities for joint working and shared learning

  • Maximising delivery opportunities within WRAP’s consistency agenda
