To answer the question of: “How much to tip waste?” for the citizens of the U.K. The UK government funded “WRAP” organisation publishes a Gate Fees Report annually. Its Gate Fees Report for 2012 is available on the WRAP website.
This report is issued annually to provide an updated summary of charges for a range of alternative waste treatment, recovery and disposal options across the UK, including landfill disposal. This Gate Fees Report compares current charges with those in previous years, and summarises industry’s feedback on possible factors that may influence future gate fees.
The median gate fee for OAW (Open-Air Windrow composting) is little changed from last year. OAW gate fees have been more-or-less constant for several years.
The median landfill gate fee for non-hazardous material, including the standard rate of landfill tax in 2012/13, from April 2012 UK landfill disposal costs will typically cost £90 per tonne (compromising £64 per tonne landfill tax and typically £24 per tonne landfill gate fee), which is comparable to the waste treatment gate free provided by New Earth. Landfill disposal costs are expected to exceed £100 per tonne (including landfill tax) by 2014
It is not surprising that the tonnages going to landfill are reducing, because in the UK, for the disposal of waste for anaerobic digestion, the median gate fee was £41 per tonne, with a range of £35 to £60 per tonne.
The market dynamics for waste management increasingly revolve around the diversion of waste from landfill. The implementation of landfill tax has become the most significant marketing driver in the UK and has created attractive opportunities for the recycling and treatment of waste.

Landfill Gate Fees in Australia – How Much to Tip Waste in Australia
The report provides a review and summary of Australian data and methods for estimating the costs of the disposal of waste to landfill, a comparison with international data and methods, and estimates for the cost of the disposal of putrescible waste to landfill in Australia. Estimated costs of the disposal of putrescible waste to landfill range between $45 and $105 per tonne of waste in urban areas and between $42 and $102 per tonne in rural areas depending on the level of management controls and prevailing climate. see the following links:
