Landfill Tax is a tax on the disposal of waste to landfill. It aims to encourage waste producers to produce less waste, recover more value from waste, for example through recycling or composting, and to use more environmentally friendly methods of waste disposal. 

A proportion of this tax can be diverted from Treasury by waste management companies such as Enovert Management Limited and used to support a wide range of environmental projects in the vicinity of landfill sites, through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), formerly the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme. Enovert Community Trust operates under the objects of the LCF, which is regulated by ENTRUST and receives landfill tax credits from Enovert Management Limited.
