Quarterly SLfT Statistics

Quarter 2 (July to September) 2023-24 SLfT statistics.


£18.9 million in Scottish Landfill Tax (SLfT) was declared payable for the latest quarter, July to September 2023 (Q2, 2023/24). The total tonnage of standard taxable waste was 191,000 in the latest quarter.

Total SLfT declared due in Q2 of 2023/24 was the second lowest of any quarter, higher only than Q1 2020/21, which was likely to have been strongly affected by COVID-19 restrictions. Tonnes of standard taxable waste reported were the lowest for any quarter. Total tonnes of lower rate waste were the lowest since Q1 2022/23, but remain relatively high compared to tonnes of standard rate taxable waste.

26 operators provided returns for the latest quarter, covering 46 sites.
