The indicative targets for diverting landfill tax credits to sustainable waste management are not mandatory. In May this year the Government set the waste industry a challenging target of 65 per cent. of landfill tax credits to be allocated to sustainable waste management projects. The Government will review progress in forthcoming Budget reports.
