Landfill Communities Fund brand guidelines

To ensure clarity of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) it is important that more projects continue to come forward and apply for funding. It is therefore crucial that as many people as possible are aware of the LCF and the projects it can support.

One means of doing this is to use the LCF logo on publicity/information material whenever a related project has received financial support from the LCF, or where information is written about the scheme.

To achieve these aims we encourage the use of the LCF logo on all materials connected with the scheme (e.g. information boards, publicity leaflets, websites etc).

If you are issuing a press release about a project funded by the LCF, please use the following wording in your Note to Editors:

The Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) is an innovative tax credit scheme enabling Landfill Operators (LOs) to contribute money to organisations enrolled with ENTRUST as Environmental Bodies (EBs).  EBs use this funding for a wide range of community and environmental projects in the vicinity of landfill sites. LOs are able to claim a credit (4.2% for 2016/2017) against their landfill tax liability for 90% of the contributions they make.   

Since its inception in 1996, over £1.4bn has been spent on more than 53,000 projects across the UK. For further information, please visit or see HMRC’s general guide to Landfill Tax.
