Helping the communities around us
Beyond the day job, our team is committed to supporting local communities and giving something back to those who need it most, while remaining mindful of our environmental impact.
Raising funds for worthy causes
We donate every year to charitable and community causes across the UK, many of which are personal to the AMA team. Here are just a few of the charities that we support.
CRASH is the charity of the UK construction industry. By helping homelessness and hospice organisations with construction projects, CRASH creates environments where families can spend precious time together, ensuring people are cared for when they’re at their most vulnerable. We support the charity in partnership with our long-standing customer, VolkerFitzpatrick.
ORCA is committed to protecting the world’s whales and dolphins, identifying areas where they may be vulnerable and tackling activities that endanger them such as shipping, fishing, noise pollution and marine litter. Every year, AMA Waste raises money for the charity and takes parts in activities to help preserve the life of these beautiful creatures.
Save the Children
Save the Children is very close to our hearts at AMA. We believe every child should be given the best possible start in life, and the work that Save the Children does is nothing short of inspiring. We have held various fundraising events for the charity over the years, with an ongoing pledge to double whatever we have raised by the end of the year.
The 23 Foundation
The 23 Foundation was founded by Jamie Carrager in 2009 to make a difference to young people in Merseyside and “help give local kids a chance”. The charity now supports good causes across the world, from sick, disabled and disadvantaged children to community and not-for-profit organisations that provide services for young people.
“Quite simply, our charity would not exist without key donors and supporters such as AMA. Their support has been invaluable over many years, in helping our charity to fulfil its objectives. From Jamie Carragher and all at the 23 Foundation, thank you for your contribution to helping others.”
– Jamie Carragher
Supporting local sports clubs
We recognise the role that sport plays in bringing communities together. That’s why we sponsor several grass-roots clubs across the east of England, as well as the University of East Anglia football team, which competes in the Anglian Combination league. Our sponsorship and ongoing support is helping these clubs develop players at all ages.
Committed to sustainability
Sustainability is one of our core values at AMA Waste – and for good reason. For us, limiting our environmental impact is more than just a legal requirement. It’s a commitment to our customers and the world around us.
98% of our customers’ waste is recycled
20% of our employees cycle to work daily
96% of staff are employed locally
We aim to plant 5,000 trees a year to offset the carbon footprint of our services
