A pioneering social business group, ‘parent’ EMERGE 3Rs is a registered charity with an arm’s length enterprise EMERGE Recycling. We exist to promote the idea and practice of the real ‘3Rs’ of waste reduction, reuse and recycling, and the wider concepts of resource efficiency and sustainable consumption. Grown from a voluntary initiative in 1996, “East Manchester Environment & Resource Group Emerge”, EMERGE continues to be based in what were once the industrial heartlands of East Manchester.
EMERGE took over Community Wood Recycling collections in the Manchester area in May 2012. Building on our existing range of waste collection and recycling services we have rapidly expanded, and collected over 100 tonnes of waste wood in April 2013 alone. Our focus now is developing sales of wood back to the community.
