This is a tax applied to all waste that is disposed of by landfill. This is calculated according to the weight of the material disposed of. Landfill operators are responsible for paying the tax and pass the cost on to businesses and local councils on top of normal landfill fees. VAT is charged on the landfill fees and the landfill tax.
The UK act of parliament relating to controlled wastes and makes provision for the management of pollution from industrial processes. The Act deals with issues relating to waste on land, defining all aspects of waste management and places a duty on local authorities to collect waste. As a business, you must ensure that any waste your company produces is handled safely and within the law. This is your ‘duty of care’.
The duty of care is the list of responsibilities a company has, to make sure everyone is safe. Businesses are responsible for making sure their waste is transferred to a responsible holder to deal with it correctly.
A waste transfer note (WTN) or Duty of Care (DOC) is a document that details the transfer of waste from one person (or business) to another. Any business that produces, handles or disposes of waste has a legal obligation to hold a Waste Transfer Note under Duty of Care legislation.
This is the amount of waste you can put in your bin; this will be marked on your Duty of Care document. This charge is linked to the Landfill tax – if you exceed this amount you will be subject to excess charges.

Unit Price or Lift Cost – The lift rate is the charge for us to collect your rubbish on each collection. To calculate your monthly invoice, we spread the costs over the whole year equally to ensure your invoices don’t fluctuate. So, for example, if you have weekly collections, we multiply your collections by 52 (weeks in the year) and then divide the cost of the 52 collections by 12 (months of the year) to produce your monthly invoice. We do this so that you can accurately budget for your year ahead.
