From today several communities in Oldham will have the exciting opportunity to be a part of the Recycle for Greater Manchester’s ‘Up and Forward’ project funded by the European Funding stream Life +.
Project staff from Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority (GMWDA) and Oldham Council will be working with residents to establish their barriers to recycling to help create innovative solutions. The Up and Forward project team are asking for local residents to become Recycling Ambassadors to ensure the community’s voice is heard.
Quote from Cllr Swannick ‘This is a great opportunity for the residents of Oldham to get involved in a recycling project which will be focused on them and their needs, the outcome of which can be shared across Greater Manchester and Europe’
