The Trust awards grants under the terms of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), providing funding to a broad range of projects that have as big an impact on the community as possible.
The Trust is committed to supporting community and environmental projects across the UK. These include improving community halls, the creation of new play areas and skate parks, and restoring green spaces.
If you have a project or an idea for a project, please call Trust Secretary, Angela Haymonds, on 01753 582513 to check whether your project would be eligible and for guidance on putting your application together. Alternatively, please click Apply for funding for details of the application process.
The deadlines for applications are:
- 17 June 22 for a meeting on 5 July 2022
- 9 September 22 for a meeting on 18 October 2022
- 9 December 2022 for a meeting in January 2023 (date tbc)
The Trust funds projects within ten miles of Enovert Management Limited’s waste management operations in:
- Bristol (BS16 9NN) (until 9 Sep 2022, after which ECT will be closed for applications in this area)
- Cheltenham (GL52 7RS)
- Southend-On-Sea (SS3 0NR)
- Cirencester (GL7 1YG)

Enovert’s Shortwood Landfill Site to the east of Bristol is now closed and as a result the Trust will be closing to new applications from the Bristol/South Glos area following its October 2022 meeting. Sevenoaks, St Helens, the London Borough of Bexley, Wrexham and Swansea, are no longer covered by the Trust following the closure of waste management facilities, a change in ownership or devolution of the landfill tax in Wales.
