All households in England may be obliged to collect food waste in a separate caddy under plans to be announced next week. Ministers are backing the idea, but will offer it for consultation before any changes happen.The scheme will reduce greenhouse gases from landfill, but could lead to less frequent collections of general household waste. Some councils will oppose the policy unless they are given extra funds.At the moment, only around 35% of households in England are obliged to put food waste in its own caddy.
That compares with 56% in Scotland and 100% in Wales. The figures exclude food waste mixed with garden waste.Why do we need food caddies“If we all stopped wasting the food which could have been eaten, it would have the same CO? impact as taking one in four cars off UK roads.”Follow Roger on Twitter.
