Councillors celebrate roll out of 20 new recycling units across the city centre.
20 new recycling units have been rolled out across the city centre as part of our ongoing commitment to improving recycling rates in the city.
The units, which include separate bins for paper and cardboard and glass and plastic also include a separate bin for general waste to prevent contamination which has been a problem with previous recycling bins in the city centre.
The new units have been placed on Piccadilly, in Piccadilly Gardens, Whitworth Street West, Church Street, Thomas Street, Sackville Gardens, Lincoln Square, Victoria station, Lower Byrom Street, St. John's Gardens, Castlefield Arena, Castlefield Basin, Market Street, Cross Street and St. Ann's Street.
Cllr Kevin Peel, who also represents Manchester on Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority, said:
"We are 100% committed to radically increasing recycling rates in Manchester and we're delighted to have been able to deliver these new recycling units.
"In addition, we're working with officers and block management companies to improve recycling facilities in residential buildings.
"If your building has inadequate recycling facilities, please contact us and we can work with you to improve it."
