Helping Greater Manchester Welcome to Recycle for Greater Manchester

We buy and throw away things every day. What we do with what we throw away makes a difference. Whether it’s a tram ticket, a shop receipt or a drinks can. By putting the right stuff in the right bin, we are all playing a big part in making sure what can be recycled, is recycled.

In Greater Manchester, we recycled over 46.7%  in 2016/17 but together we can do better!
