LandTrust - Scottish Landfill Communities Fund


This is a Government initiative which was introduced to reduce the impact of landfill sites on neighbouring communities by funding local environmental projects. The aim of the scheme is to enable landfill operators to support various types of environmental projects by donating a percentage of their landfill tax liability.

Projects must conform to one of the following criteria:

  • projects that involve reclaiming land, the use of which has been prevented by some previous activity
  • projects that reduce or prevent pollution on land
  • projects that provide or maintain public amenities or parks within 10 miles of a landfill site
  • delivery of biodiversity conservation for UK species habitats
  • projects to restore or repair buildings for religious worship, or of architectural or historical interest within 10 miles of a landfill site
  • community based recycling, re-use and waste prevention projects
