Millions of Britons will soon collect food waste separately in a food caddy, fearing that there will be an end to weekly bin collections.
The measure is expected to be announced in the government's next waste strategy.
It is seen by many as a green way to prevent waste and to stimulate the terrible recycling percentages of the country.
In the past, however, elements of the Conservative Party have been critical about what burden carriers & slops buckets & # 39; to mention.
There have also been fears in the past that the move can lead to an increase in pests such as rats and the smell generated by the decomposition of food waste.

Michael Gove, the Environment Minister, said that it would be a special priority for my department to put an end to the environmental, economic and moral scandal of food waste & # 39;
In a speech in October, he promised that the government wanted to ensure that more councils collect food waste separately and send it to anaerobic digestion plants to make green biogas for heating our homes and fertilizer to improve the soil & # 39;
But critics will propose to sloppy buckets & # 39; to bring in is a way for councils to introduce biweekly bin collections.
The movement is expected for face resistance if no more money is invested to introduce food waste.
A council earlier this year, Barnet in London, suspended the collection of food waste and claimed that it cost £ 300,000 a year to export.
In order to meet the concerns that food waste containers produce bad smells and attract flies, it is expected that food waste will be collected on a weekly basis.
General waste is collected only once every four weeks in Conwy, North Wales, according to reports in The Times.
Food waste is collected there weekly and has a higher recycling percentage than almost all other English councils.
Some residents, however, have complained about smells, flies and rats since general waste was less frequent in September.
About changes to collection plan & # 39; s said The Local Government Association: & # 39; There is no uniform solution for waste services.
& # 39; If municipalities are faced with major financial pressures, all changes to the way councils collect waste must be fully financed. & # 39;
As the Daily Mail reported this week, the recycling rate in the United Kingdom has declined in the most recent figures – up to 44.8 percent in 2017/18 compared to the previous year (inventory)
As the Daily Mail reported this week, recycling rates in the United Kingdom have declined in the most recent figures – up to 44.8 percent in 2017/18 compared to the previous year.
The environmental secretary is under pressure to encourage recycling because the UK is determined to recycle 50% of all waste by 2020, and 70% by 2030.
But one bright spot is that the amount of recycled food rose by 8.7 percent in the past year to 386,000 tons in 2017.
At present, only one in three councils collects food in England, compared to every council in Wales and just over one in two in Scotland.
Food waste can be used to deliver green energy from the anaerobic digester [AD] plants or are converted into compost.
Defra is expected to reveal the details of the strategy next week or beginning of the new year.
Graham Stuart, Minister of the International Trade Department, showed strong indications that food waste collections will be included in the government's strategy.
Mr. Stuart said: "The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will soon launch its resource and waste strategy. It sets our goal to maximize the value we receive from our resources while minimizing the negative impact of waste materials at the end of their working lives.
It addresses old problems such as waste crime, collection systems, packaging and plastic contamination, including the mandatory and mandatory setting of separate food waste collections. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; We want food waste to be collected separately for use in AD plants – to make the green biogas that can fertilize our crops and heat our homes: an environmentally sustainable waste management option that reduces the landfill . & # 39;
HOW MUCH RECYCLING IS ENDED IN THE LOCATION?
Every day, millions of us drop a plastic bottle or cardboard package into the trash – and we feel that we are contributing to the environment.
But what we may not realize is that most plastic is never recycled and, in many cases, ends up in landfills or incinerators.
Of the 30 billion plastic bottles used by households in the UK each year, only 57 percent are currently being recycled. Half goes to the landfill, half is lost.
Most plastic is never recycled and often ends up in landfills or incineration depots instead. About 700,000 plastic bottles a day end up as waste
About 700,000 plastic bottles a day end up as waste.
This is largely due to plastic packaging around bottles that are non-recyclable.
Every year the UK throws 2.5 billion & # 39; papers & # 39; cups away, which comes down to 5,000 cups per minute.
It is shocking that less than 0.4 percent of this is recycled.
Most cups are made of cardboard with a thin layer of plastic.
This lining keeps your coffee warm and prevents the cardboard from getting damp, but makes the cup almost impossible to recycle.
