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 divert waste from landfill.

Customers are able to commingle their recycling material in the same bin. The materials that are accepted for recycling are:

  • Paper (including shredded paper)
  • Cardboard (large pieces should be broken up so they fit in the bin)
  • Tins
  • Cans

Your waste - your responsibility:

  • if you produce, carry, import, keep, treat or dispose of waste you have a legal 'duty of care' to make sure your waste is handled safely and passed to people authorised to receive it.
  • 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.
