Are you a local organisation, a school or a community group that wants to make an improvement to Doncaster's environment?

Doncaster Council is responsible for the management of waste and recycling from households and businesses in the borough.  The council works closely with specialist contractors to effectively manage waste in line with the Governments Waste Hierarchy i.e; reduce, re-use, recycle, recover and as a last resort dispose of the waste collected.

The contractors we work with want to help those in Doncaster who want to improve our environment by making funding available, specifically for projects which improve our local natural environment, reduce waste and increase recycling.

Funding is available to community, voluntary and environmental groups, charities and not for profit organisations who would benefit from financial assistance to deliver on projects that benefit our environment.

Further information about our contractors and the funding available can be found below. 

SUEZ recycling and recovery UK - Responsible for the collection of waste and recycling from homes and businesses in the borough. SUEZ set up an environment fund in 2019 which supports the community and has distributed more than £80,000 since it was established, with projects ranging from community gardens to libraries and bike schemes.

This year (2024), SUEZ changed the scheme and concentrated efforts on reducing food waste and supporting vulnerable residents, with funding given to 10 food banks across the borough.

Shane Atkins, SUEZ Contract General Manager, said, “SUEZ has a long history in Doncaster and we are delighted to be able to play our part in supporting the community. This year, with a focus on reducing food waste and with rising costs for food itself, we’re proud to support those most vulnerable in the community with donations to 10 food banks across the borough.”

Information about the winners and projects funded can be found on the following page Doncaster Environment Fund - SUEZ in UK. Please check here for further updates on when the next round of funding will be available.

Renewi plc - Responsible for the treatment and recovery of BDR's (Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Councils') residual waste.  Each year the Corporate Social Responsibility fund managed by Renewi provides assistance from the annual £6,000 fund available. 

This year (2022/23), in response to the current cost of living crisis, which is affecting many families in our area, Renewi have decided to change the way the CSR Fund is distributed.  Rather than inviting groups to bid for the funding Renewi are going to make donations to three local Foodbanks - one in each of the three Council areas.

Funding will be available again early 2024.  Please check here for further updates or on the BDR Waste Partnership website at and
