Contaminated material is taxed at £64 per tonne (September 2012) and this rate is set to increase each year by £8 per tonne until a ceiling or £80 per tonne is reached.
The current rate for inert or inactive waste is £2.50 per tonne. In 2012, HMRC introduced new subsidiary guidance Revenue & Customs Brief 15/12 more closely defining inactive waste qualifying for the lower rate.
