What is the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund?

Companies that operate landfill sites collect landfill tax for every tonne of waste that goes into one of their sites. The Scottish Government allows a proportion of this tax to be allocated to the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF) to support community and environmental improvement projects. SUEZ Communities Trust is one of the funders registered to distribute SLCF funding and receives its funding from SUEZ recycling and recovery UK, which owns and operates landfill sites in Scotland.

The Scottish Landfill Communities Fund is regulated by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA)
