Landfill Tax increases For April 2011


Landfill sites are now gearing up for their annual price increases in line with the additional £8 per tonne landfill tax, taking landfill disposal charges in some regions to well over £100 per tonne.

These increases are designed to encourage companies and individuals to seek out alternatives to landfill for disposal of their waste and the increases have been driven up exponentially in the past few years making it even more of a priority to look at current waste disposal arrangements.

There are simple but effective ways to increase your recycling rate, which in turn will decrease your waste costs and future proof you against the spiraling cost of sending waste to landfill.

One quick fix for any site is to install separate containers to enable segregation at source for different waste materials (such as packaging and inert waste) Skip Hire UK also ensure that every mixed waste skip is taken to a MRF or transfer station and sorted to minimise the landfill tax costs and comply with the pre treatment regulations.

As an individual hiring a skip at home, you can be assured that by using Skip Hire UK as your waste management company you will be doing your best for the environment.
