COVID-19 Help protect our bin collectors – safe disposal of waste
Anyone asked to self-isolate either as a precaution or because they are confirmed to have coronavirus (COVID-19) should follow this advice:
- Put your waste in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it up when full. This is especially important when disposing of tissues and cleaning cloths.
- Put the plastic bag in a second bin bag and tie this up.
- Make sure this is stored in a suitable and secure place away from children and pets. Keep all waste stored for at least 72 hours before putting it out for collection.
