The LIFE+ Up & Forward recycling project has worked to encourage residents to waste less and recycle more in hard to reach communities across Greater Manchester.
GMWDA was funded by the EU LIFE+ programme to carry out the 2-year recycling project between 2013-2015 to demonstrate how improved communication can increase waste prevention and recycling in low performing urban areas.
The Up and Forward recycling project developed 12 campaigns based on four demographic themes linked to low performance.

If everyone in Greater Manchester recycled one magazine, it would save enough energy to power a local primary school for more than three years and four months #RecyclingFacts #ThursdayThoughts #RecycleRight buff.ly/2mMP62S pic.twitter.com/urCpn2e2JT
@lowwintersun @BudGardenCentre The Environmental Agency set strict emissions limits which we adhere to and closely monitor. If you have any more questions about this please send us an email email@example.com
@BudGardenCentre @lowwintersun The fuel produced from this process is sent by rail to the Combined Heat and Power station at Runcorn. The heat that this process produces is captured within the facility and in turn used to create steam, which drives turbines to produce electricity [2/2]
@BudGardenCentre @lowwintersun Hi Jonathan, we don’t claim that general waste is recycled. Rubbish from your general waste bin is taken to one of our five Mechanical Biological Treatment facilities (MBT) where it is treated to generate end products and electricity [1/2]
