Its getting close to that time of year again when H.M Revenue and Customs revise (“raise”) the rates of landfill tax.
As of the first of April 2018 you’ll be paying:-
- Standard Rate tax increases to £88.95 per tonne
- Lower Rate tax increases to £2.80 per tonne
Of course on top of this there are the varying gate fees charged by the disposal point which depending on the type of waste, contaminant, etc can range anywhere from £10 – £60 per tonne.
Also remember, if you’re looking to dispose of contaminated soils and they are accepted at a Soil Treatment Centre then no tax will be levied and its only the gate fees you will be charged.

The new rates of UK Landfill taxation rates from the 1st April 2017 are;
Standard rate – £86.10
Lower rate – £2.70
OK, so this modest increase in landfill tax is not really a deduction but if your have perfectly recyclable Non-Hazardous contaminated soils then the reality is that you will only have to pay the lower rate of LFT, so it is in reality a deduction in what you should really be paying.
We all know that this is counter productive to achieving the Scottish Zero Waste Plan but as SEPA are the promoters of this position (see post –
Is landfill the new solution to pollution – SEPA think so) then any recycling of soils to divert waste away from landfill to restore the tens of thousands of derelict land is not going to happen until they see sense. Which, given recent discussions with them will not be for a very long time as their budgets were cut and so they’re trying to reduce their workload…!
Long live ‘dig and dump’…!
Anyone got a lorry we can hire…?
