Diversion rate of 5.1 percent announced in Budget 2014

This is a decrease of 25% from a diversion rate of 6.8%.

It is thought to have been partly brought about by the failure of some Environmental Bodies to meet the Government Challenge.

The Government also announced that the £7.1m saving made from the reduction in the landfill tax diversion rate would be used to address waste crime. It is ADEB's hope that these funds will be restored to the LCF next year.
