EMERGE Recycling now has a dedicated website!

Please check out our new website: to access our services and information.

Our EMERGE Recycling web pages below will remain here as an archive for a few weeks, but will no longer be updated, so make sure you bookmark the new site as your future port of call for all things waste reuse and recycling in Greater Manchester.

Please follow us on social media too for up-to-the minute news, job and volunteering opportunities and events:

Classic service

We place bins inside your workplace and visit on an agreed frequency to collect your source-separated materials direct from the bin. Materials can include: paper, cardboard, drinks cans, plastic bottles, glass, toner cartridges. Ask us about any other waste materials you generate.
This unique and personal service caters to your individual needs, whether you are looking for a simple paper collection or a range of materials collected from your offices. Collections from an accessible central point attract a discount.

External services

We can provide 240L and 1100L wheeled bins and empty them on an agreed frequency from an external location for a range of source-separated materials for recycling. We can offer a similar external bin service for residual waste for disposal.

Perfect for Pubs, Clubs and Hospitality Outlets:
There is no need to separate different coloured glass and, depending upon your location, we can collect from you up to five days per week.

The service is predominantly used for glass but we can also collect cans and plastic bottles as part of this service, and cardboard separately (see below).

Bins, bags & containers

EMERGE has a range of waste and recycling bins and confidential waste storage consoles available for whichever service you require.

Men with recycling containers and truck

For business service customers we propose two main types of bin for your office

  1. The eco sort has a range of lids to accommodate different materials and needs.

  2. There is also a cheaper option available, made out of cardboard. Please ask the office for more details.

If neither recycling bin meets your needs, please contact EMERGE and we can help source you something more suitable.

Cardboard collection

We have a number of options for cardboard collection: our regular bags, bulk bags, cages or 1100L bins (you can purchase or rent these or in some cases we will provide them foc).

Space problems?

If you have no space inside your offices for recycling storage consoles, we can also collect from external areas or a central location of your choice. Please call us on 0161 223 8200 or email:
