HISTORIC PRESS RELEASE : Publication of research on recycling landfill tax revenues [February 2004]

The press release issued by HM Treasury on 11 February 2004.

Following Budget 2003, the Government commissioned research from the consultancy Integrated Skills on ways in which increases in landfill tax could be recycled to business.  The Government is publishing that research today.

This independent report highlights a range of measures which could be useful to businesses in reducing the amount of waste that is sent to landfill.  The two high priority options identified are targeted grants, and funding for increases in promotional, capacity building and advisory services.  However a range of other options are also considered to be helpful for business in reducing waste sent to landfill.
