The Government is proposing to increase the landfill levy and apply it to more types of waste. This consultation document is seeking feedback on proposals to:

  • apply the levy to all types of landfill except cleanfills (accepting only virgin excavated natural materials) and farm dumps
  • apply the levy at different rates for different landfill types, to reflect different environmental and social costs of disposal, and different opportunities for recovery of different materials
  • collect better waste data.
