Estimates for Quarter 2, July to September 2018.

Organisation:

This statistical release presents official statistics for Landfill Disposals Tax.

These initial estimates for Quarter 2 are provisional. We will revise these estimates in the next statistics publication.

Key points

For material disposed as waste to landfill for the period July to September:

  • There were 360 thousand tonnes of authorised disposals, a fall of 10 per cent from the previous quarter. This was driven by falls in lower rate disposals and relieved or discounted material.
  • These disposals resulted in £13.7m of tax due, a rise of 19 per cent from the previous quarter. This was largely due to an increase in standard rate disposals by a small number of landfill site operators.
  • 88 thousand tonnes of relieved or discounted material was disposed of, resulting in £0.2m tax relieved.
  • During the period covered in this release, there were 18 authorised landfill site operators covering 24 sites.
