130.Section 61 provides that a landfill site operator who fails to determine the weight of the material in a taxable disposal in accordance with section 20 is liable to a penalty not exceeding £500 in respect of each taxable disposal to which the failure relates.

131.Section 62 provides that where a landfill site operator applies a discount without having approval to do so under section 21, or applies a discount which is greater than the discount approved under section 21, the landfill site operator is liable to a penalty not exceeding £500 in respect of each taxable disposal to which a discount is applied in either of those ways.
