As one of our lead partners, SUEZ provides foundation funding for GMMC from the proceeds of their second-hand shops.

"Established in the UK in 1988 as part of the global SUEZ group, SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK employs more than 5,000 people. We manage the waste sites on behalf of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), managing 1.1 million tonnes of waste arising from nearly 2.3 million residents. We help to reduce the environmental impact of our customers’ waste by recycling and extracting the value from it, putting Greater Manchester’s waste to good use. Our company’s diverse activities are guided by a vision to engineer a society where there is no more waste and our goal is to help create a circular economy in which nearly all waste materials are given a second life and reused, recycled or recovered for their energy content.”

“We are proud to support the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity, enabling them to provide essential funding to end homelessness in Greater Manchester and provide support to those at risk of homelessness. SUEZ is passionate about social value, and having communities which support each other is a huge part of that. Being able to provide the foundation funding for the Charity to do its vital work in this area from the proceeds of our second-hand shops enables us to support the people, the communities, and the environment across Greater Manchester by putting waste to good use.” - Anna Bell, Contract Manager for SUEZ in Greater Manchester
