"Having been established on the Wirral for over 60 years, Bagnall & Morris Waste Services have always supported the local economy through servicing other businesses with their waste management services, or through local employment of staff at their Bromborough based depot.

B&M are Carbon Neutral and operate on a zero waste to landfill ethos, working with companies to increase segregation of waste and subsequently increase recycling.
"Tranmere Rovers offer the perfect partnership given their profile on the Wirral. Their ethos of engagement with people in the community and sustainability programmes made them the obvious choice. Our long established corporate social responsibility programme involves a long term partnership with Claire House and many other charitable organisations. We wanted to work together to show our support of our local football club and the wider Wirral community.
"The shirt sponsorship was the obvious choice, as there is no prouder way to show we are supporting the club.
