Trigon in Dorset and Lean Quarry in Cornwall have been closed to waste for a number of months. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the future of these sites, Viridor Credits took the decision in the summer to reduce funding in these areas, pending Viridor's decision on the future of these landfill sites.
Closed landfill sites do not generate any landfill tax and, therefore, do not generate any funds for Viridor Credits to distribute. Due to the continued closure of Trigon and Lean Quarry, Viridor Credits is no longer able to consider applications in these areas.
The final closing date for applications in these areas is 31 January 2018, with a final meeting date of March 2018. Please ensure that you submit any applications far in advance of the closing date to give our Grants Officers the best chance to assess your application. Incomplete applications will be declined.
If you have any questions regarding these closures, please contact a member of the team on 01823 476476.
