Revenue Scotland administers and collects SLfT with support from the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA).[3][4]

The rates of Scottish Landfill Tax (given in £/tonne) are £84.40 (standard rate) and £2.65 (lower rate) from 1 April 2016,[5] increased from the preceding year's rates of £82.60 and £2.60 respectively. The rates for the 2019-20 year will increase to £91.35 (standard rate) and £2.90 (lower rate)
