Emerging in Front

Hulme-based recyclers EMERGE are the city's only commercial kerb side collection company. Set up by a handful of committed green activists a few year years ago in East Manchester, EMERGE have now been awarded a £30,000 grant, from the Landfill Tax credit scheme, to help them continue both their collections and their promotion of the needs for reducing, reusing and recycling our "waste".

EMERGE also scored another recent success with winning the tender from the City Council to collect paper from city centre offices.

With all the extra work, EMERGE are looking for more volunteers, particularly an admin worker, an outreach worker, and those who have committment and interest in recycling. Training and expenses are provided. For more details give them a ring!
