Doncaster Environment Fund

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.
