The controversial zero waste policy - part of the Government's drive to cut greenhouse gas emissions - will be unveiled tomorrow by Environment Minister Hilary Benn.
The plans are due to be outlined at a 'waste summit' aimed at finding new ways to halve the 62million tons of rubbish sent to landfill each year.
Ministers will discuss the issue with councils, businesses and waste experts.
Yesterday, Mr Benn said the Government would launch a consultation early next year into banning food, cans, paper and glass from landfill.
Homes that persistently break the rules by putting food waste in the ordinary dustbin could face fines of £1,000 or more.
