Our charity partners
Giving charities the power to do more

When it comes to philanthropy, 1st Waste gives in various ways, including cash donations, grants, in-kind gifts, sponsorships, joint marketing initiatives and pro bono services.

We promote workplace giving through employee matching gifts programmes and other efforts that encourage our workers to give their time and money to various charities.

The Story So Far

It’s been our goal to build win-win partnerships and through giving to local charities we have wanted to make a difference in our community.

We’ve found that nothing pulls people together better than a common goal. We encourage our employees to get involved as a team and rally behind the cause.

Whether it’s hosting pre or post work walk and run groups or doing sponsored swims it is a great way to improve the health of our team while increasing morale in the company and raising funds for good causes.

Charities we support

We pick local and national charities to partner based upon our values.

We invite our customers and suppliers to get involved and find that this creates a loyalty that goes beyond the day to day working relationship.

As waste management specialists, we are focused on playing our small part in saving the planet and the environments we are operating in.

From planting trees to clearing the local beaches of litter we seek a natural connection between us and our charitable partner.

We think it’s about supporting charitable organisations that are a good fit for us.
