Landfill Operators as direct funders

You might be able to find Landfill Operators (LOs) who will give contributions directly to your organisation. While many LOs take part in the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), not all do. Not all LOs are potential sources of funding for your work. The only way to find out is to contact them and ask.

A list of LOs in England and Northern Ireland can be obtained from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) website. LOs have to be registered with HMRC to take part in the scheme. If you plan to receive money directly from LOs, you will need to enrol your organisation as an Environmental Body (EB) with us.

UK Landfill Tax ended in Wales on 31 March 2018. This means that Welsh Landfill Operators will not make further contributions to the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) as they have stopped paying UK landfill tax. You may still find funding via a Distributive EB.

The LCF is no longer available in Scotland. For enquiries about the new Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF) or more information on the SLCF please contact the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).
