King Street and St Ann’s Commercial Waste Scheme: Join the #WasteCollective27th Feb 2020
Manchester is committed to the goal of reducing the city’s climate emissions to zero by 2038, or earlier if possible – at least 12 years ahead of the current national target. To meet this ambitious target, as a business community, we need to go further.
As part of the city’s action plan, CityCo has helped to launch a partnership scheme to tackle reducing carbon emissions through better commercial waste management.
This part of the system has a crucial part to play in improving the city centre environment for all.
King Street and St Ann’s Square Businesses
Sign-up to join the city’s new Commercial #WasteCollective.
The pilot scheme will improve collection schedules, increase recycling, clean-up the street environment and reduce emissions.
The project is a partnership between local carbon-neutral waste management company B&M Waste Services, CityCo, Transport for Greater Manchester and Manchester City Council.
Aims and Benefits of Waste Consolidation
- Improved air quality – lower emissions helping Manchester meet Clean Air targets
- Improved the street environment – potential increase in footfall from an improved public realm
- Fewer providers, fewer vehicles – greater control of schedules, better route planning, increased efficiency, reduced overall mileage
- Commercial benefits – reduced rate for collective waste collection due to a greater volume from one provider
- Safety benefits – reduction of vehicle movements and use of low emission vehicles that meet standards
- Reduction in waste management enforcement action against non-compliant businesses
- Improved environmental impact monitoring and reporting
- Improved perception of Manchester’s streetscape as clean and attractive for the benefit of residents, visitors and businesses.
