22 Mar 2023

Spring has arrived, and so has the eagerly anticipated Spring Budget announcement. Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has delivered his speech on outlining the government's plans for the coming year, with a focus on economic recovery and growth.

Following the Chancellor's announcement on Wednesday March 2023, we can provide the following updates:

1. The Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) for 2023-2024 is set at £32.9m. 

2. The diversion rate for contributions from Landfill Operators will remain at 5.3%.

3. The Entrust levy for 20232024 has been set at 3.38% 

Looking ahead, we expect the scheme will continue to help foster sustainable communities and promote environmental stewardship across England & Northern Ireland.
