History
Cumbria Waste Management Environment Trust (CWMET) was established in 1999 for purposes beneficial to the community, principally to enable efficient and effective distribution of grants arising under the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme, now known as the Landfill Communities Fund. Cumbria Waste Management Environment Trust became a registered charity on 6th March 2002 (Charity Number 1090965). It is also a Company Limited by Guarantee and therefore has a Memorandum and Articles of Association as its governing document (Company Number 4282827). The Company was incorporated on 6th September 2001. Since April 2012 its area of benefit covers the local authority areas of Carlisle, Eden, Allerdale and Copeland in the County of Cumbria

Principal Activities
CWMET’s principal activity is acting as a grant distribution body funding projects within the local authority areas of Carlisle, Eden, Allerdale and Copeland providing the project is within 10 miles of an active tax paying landfill site. The grants are open to all Parish Councils, Community Groups or organisations, which are non-profit distributing bodies and not under Local Authority Control. They must have a constitution that allows them to support CWMET’s objects.
CWMET receives funding through Cumbria Waste Management Ltd and Lakeland Waste Management Ltd and is a Distributive Environmental Body within the terms of the Landfill Communities Fund. CWMET is regulated by the government regulator of Environmental Bodies, Entrust who is based in Royal Leamington Spa.
