Landfill Tax Regulations
Under the Waste Management (Landfill Levy) Regulations, The Government currently charges €75 per tonne for commercial waste disposed of in landfill. This levy is payable on top of whatever fee local authorities or private landfill owners charge for use of their site. Although the levy is standard in all landfill sites, gate fees may vary from site to site.
Money from this levy goes towards the Environmental Fund set up to provide finance for environmental projects.
It is obvious that landfill is becoming an ever increasingly expensive option. This strategy will help encourage waste producers to reduce the amount of waste they throw away, promote recycling initiatives and make it more financially attractive for the waste industry to invest in new innovative waste treatment methods.
