The rates of landfill tax for England and Northern Ireland will increase in line with the retail prices index. The lower rate will increase to £3.10 per tonne, and the standard rate to £96.70 per tonne.
Landfill tax applies to operators of authorised and unauthorised waste sites.
The increase applies to taxable disposals made on or after 1 April 2021.
This measure is in line with the announcement made at last year’s Budget.
