As we keep getting asked this question we thought an update would be in order.
At present the UK landfill tax is £84.40 per tonne as of April 2016 . Further increases are being considered by the government.
Hazardous soil disposal rates vary across the country from around £50/t – £150/t depending on the type of contamination and volume. Essentially the greater the volume the better gate fee you will get.
Non-hazardous soil disposal again varies across the country from around £20/t – £50/t taxed at £2.65 per tonne as of April 2016.
If in doubt or need more help why not give us a call on 0131 538 8456 or email us as we have good relations with many landfill operators and should be able to get you preferential rates.
