BDR Waste Partnership

Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham have almost 350,000 households, which last year between them produced around 340,000 tonnes of waste – almost one tonne per household.

BDR is a partnership of Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham councils set up more than two decades ago to jointly manage waste generated in the three boroughs.

More than 1.2 billion metres of the stuff is used by households in Britain every year - enough to go around the world 30 times! It is hard to recycle and when it ends up in the sea is a deadly threat to fish. But there are lots of re-usable alternatives.
