The Council & democracy Domestic Waste & Recycling Service Standard

Service standards for waste and recycling collections

The waste and recycling service standard document gives details of our service standard for providing domestic recycling and refuse collections. Unless there are exceptional circumstances in relation to a particular property (or particular residents at a property) this will apply equally to all properties and residents across Manchester.

The aims of this service standard are to:

  • support the implications of local, national and European pressures for change to reduce the amount of biodegradable waste that is sent to landfill;
  • ensure that we maintain safe, economic and efficient recycling and waste collections; and
  • contribute towards the objective for Greater Manchester of zero waste to landfill.
