Commercial waste and recycling

We provide a range of waste and recycling collection and disposal services for businesses and educational establishments in Doncaster.

On this page are details of commercial waste and recycling collections as well as an online form to request a quote or more information.

Coronavirus Update

Due to COVID-19 we are aware that many businesses have ceased trading until further notice in line with current Government guidance.

Many of our existing customers may have not had the opportunity to contact us to request that their commercial waste/recycling collections to be suspended.

The council and SUEZ are working very closely to identify premises which have not presented container(s) for emptying on scheduled collection day(s). Where premises have been identified as not presenting their container(s), we will suspend your service(s) and place your account on hold.

If your container(s) have not been emptied as expected and your collection service is required please contact us by:

to ensure collections continue to be provided in line with your current contract.

Once you are in a position to begin trading again and require your collections services starting back up, this can be organised swiftly. Please notify us via the contact channels above.

Waste collection service

Our commercial waste collection service offers a variety of containers to suit your every need. Special arrangements can also be made for other wastes including bulky wastes.

  • any waste defined as Commercial Waste under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (S.75)
  • commercial or household waste - eg packaging, office/shop waste
  • catering/food waste - but not uncooked meat
  • plastics

Food waste which includes animal products is subject to the Animal By Products (Enforcement) (England) Regulations 2011.  Please see  "ABPR Waste Food Disposal Leaflet" for further information about what can and cannot be disposed of in your commercial waste bin.

For further advice on food premises and the collection and disposal of animal by products, please contact the councils Enforcement and Environmental Protection, Animal Health Team on 01302 736000 or see  Guidance on the disposal of animal by products


Recycling collection Service

We are committed to increasing the amount of waste recycled in Doncaster and provide a bespoke recycling service to the borough's businesses in order to do so. Material diverted for recycling could enable your business to reduce your waste container size and/or frequency of collections. This will save your business money and help the environment by reducing the amount sent to landfill.

You can put your materials for recycling in the same bin. The materials  accepted for recycling are:

  • paper (including shredded paper)
  • cardboard (large pieces should be broken up so they fit in the bin)
  • tins
  • cans
  • foil
  • empty aerosols
  • plastic bottles

Cost

Payment for the service is required in advance, this can be a one off payment or by instalments - monthly, quarterly or bi-annually.

You can pay by:

Your waste - your responsibility:

  • as a business you are legally required to provide details of the type of waste you are disposing of and to ensure that the company who collects, transports and disposes of it is registered to do so

Our collection contractor, SUEZ Environment Ltd, is registered with the Environment Agency as a waste carrier and we will provide you with an annual waste transfer note (duty of care) to help you to fulfil your legal obligations.
