Please use the map to see if you are within 5 miles of an eligible waste transfer station or landfill site

The Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme will fund projects within 5 miles of certain waste transfer stations or landfill sites. Eligible sites are those that reported sending in excess of 2000 tonnes to landfill in the reporting year, eligible sites are subject to change between funding rounds and so it is advisable that you check the map just before you begin your application. The map will be updated ahead of a funding round opening; and will show eligible sites for that round.

Once you have confirmed your project is within one or more of these eligible sites read the scheme  guidance document to check whether your project fits with the themes of the funding and other eligibility criteria.


Biodiversity projects that extend outside of the 5-mile boundary will be considered as the scheme appreciates that habitats (such as rivers) do not recognise boundaries and that benefits may be felt in areas other than, or in addition to, the site in which project activity takes place. Applications submitted that fall into this category will be considered on a case by case basis for full or partial funding.

If your project does not fall within an eligible area, or if you are unsure whether your project qualifies under the theme criteria, please contact ldtgrants@wcva.org.uk or your local County Voluntary Council for further guidance.
