Waste Recycling PDF Print E-mail


The disposal of waste, landfill, incineration or composting usually attracts a “gate fee” and in some cases landfill tax. The gate fee is a charge levied upon a given quantity of waste received at a waste processing facility. The gate fee usually includes the costs of the site maintenance and operations and the landfill tax that is applicable in the region.

Today, most countries discourage landfills because of increasing lack of tipping space and environment concerns, particularly with the older unlined tips. Uncontrolled emissions of landfill gases have an influence on climate change, as their major components are carbon dioxide and methane, both greenhouse gases. For example, in the UK, one way to discourage landfills was to introduce a landfill tax that is a financial burden for waste producers (currently £80 per tonne).

In France, the tax is lower (€40 per tonne in 2015), but the Budget Act provides full tax exemption for waste received at facilities that control and recover 100% of the biogas generated during waste treatment.

During the preliminary stages of project planning, Saigas researches the optimal process methods offering customers a solution that is both compliant with future environmental standards and can maximise income.

The benefit for waste producers is a fixed competitive rate for gate-fees for a five to ten years period, whilst the benefit for Saigas is to insure the supply of the latest technology in anaerobic digestion.

Any private or public body that produces up to 10,000 tonnes of waste per year can find with Saigas’ expertise a cost effective solution to its waste disposal problems.
