Landfill Communities Fund

The Landfill Communities Fund is an innovative tax credit scheme enabling operators of landfill sites to contribute money to organisations enrolled with ENTRUST as Environmental Bodies.

There are two methods of receiving funding:

  • from an organisation that distributes the monies on a landfill operator’s behalf; or
  • directly from a Landfill Operator.
