[GreenYes] UK landfill tax system possible changes
The United Kingdom has imposed a tax on its landfills to "internalize the
environmental externalities" and to provide an economic disincentive to
landfill materials, and instead to encourage more waste reduction and
recovery.

The government of the UK is going through a public re-evaluation of the tax
and the uses of the revenue. Although the comment period is now closed, the
following link is an interesting description of the tax and the alternatives
that are being examined.
