We work closely with the Derbyshire Environmental Trust who administer the Landfill Communities Fund on our behalf. The Derbyshire Environmental Trust was established in August 1997 to meet the need for landfill tax contributions to go through an environmental body.
1. Request application pack and seek guidance on the eligibility of your project.
2. Complete the application form and return to Derbyshire Environmental Trust along with any supporting documents/ information.
3. Your application will be reviewed by the Red Industries Landfill Communities Fund Committee. Applicants will be informed of the decision by letter.
4. If successful, obtain and submit copies of at least three competitive quotations for the work.
5. Derbyshire Environmental Trust will seek to adopt the project and register it with ENTRUST (the national regulator of the Landfill Communities Fund).
6. Once registration is confirmed, applicants will be sent a draft legal agreement and asked to provide the Third Party Contribution.
7. After the Third Party Contribution has been received and the formal contract agreed, work may begin.
Applications are accepted all year round. The RED Industries Landfill Communities Fund panel meets 3-4 times per year to review applications.
