Landfill Tax Regulations Ireland

Under the latest Waste Management (Landfill Levy) Regulations 2015, The government charges €75 per tonne for commercial waste disposed of in landfill. This levy is payable on top of whatever fee local authorities or private landfill owners charge for use of their site. Although the levy is standard in all landfill sites, gate fees may vary from site to site.

Money from this levy goes towards the Environmental Fund set up to provide finance for environmental projects. With landfill is becoming an ever increasingly expensive option, the levy encourages waste producers to reduce the amount of waste they throw away, promote recycling initiatives and make it more financially attractive to invest in innovative waste reduction equipment and services such as provided by Ancove.

With Ireland producing over 2.6 million tonnes of waste a year, every business has a legal duty to deal with its waste responsibly, reduce its reliance on landfill and increase the amount it recycles.

Cardboard and plastic waste are the most common types of waste affecting businesses and the costs of managing and disposing of this waste can be high unless it is managed correctly.

As well as technology to help you better manage your waste and reduce your waste disposal costs, our expert team offers advice and guidance on the latest waste regulations and opportunities to generate revenue in the recycling market.
