All waste disposal companies are charged landfill taxes for sending residual waste to Whinney Hill. This includes other local authorities who have no landfill capacity within their boundary.
As long as the group is within 10 miles of a site (which it will be) the group could apply, however, there are two types of available funds; the Main Grants which is up to £40,000 and Small Grants which is up to £15,000, both funds do not cover all of the cost of a scheme so there will be a need for match funding
I have highlighted the link to their website where there is under "Quick Links" a guidance note to both types of grant which seems very comprehensive, please have a read of them and let me know if you have any questions.
The next deadline for applications is 3rd October and then early in January 2012.
The receipts of which go towards funding community grants which I have listed below for Hyndburn.
