About the fund

SUEZ is responsible for the collection of waste and recycling from homes and businesses in the Doncaster borough. In 2019 an environment fund was established to support the community to improve the environment, with more than £80,000 awarded over that timeframe. The collection of small electrical items at the kerbside contributes to this fund, meaning the more items collected, the bigger the revenue fund set aside for community projects.


This year (2024), we adapted the scheme and concentrated efforts on reducing food waste and supporting vulnerable residents, with funding awarded to 10 food banks across the borough. The foodbanks supported are:

  • Mexborough Foodbank
  • All Saints Foodbank
  • Foresters Community Foodbank
  • DN7 Foodbank
  • Doncaster Foodbank (Holmescarr Centre)
  • Moorends Miners Welfare
  • Bentley Baptist Church
  • Skellow & Carcroft Organisation
  • Edlington Community Organisation
  • Askern CRY Foodbank


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.”
