Landfill tax increases by £8

The landfill tax has now increased by £8 making it £64 per tonne of waste sent to landfill. This figure is set to increase an additional £8 in 2013 and again in 2014 which will see it rise to £80 per tonne.

The Chancellor recently stated in that beyond 2014 he would not allow it to drop below that level, which is likely to signal a dramatic increase above the current £8 a tonne to further promote alternative processes.
