Rubbish and Recycling: Coronavirus Update

Following the Government’s announcement on 31 October of an England-wide lockdown we are pleased to say that all of Norfolk’s Recycling Centres will remain open as normal. Unfortunately, none of the Reuse shops will be allowed to open.

Disposal of waste

If you have been isolating due to a suspected case of coronavirus it is important that you dispose of your waste differently to help avoid the spread of the virus.

Personal waste (such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths) should be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. Please put them aside for at least 72 hours before placing them in your usual external household waste bin.

Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

Waste should be stored safely and kept away from children. If you live in a building with communal waste areas you should store your waste in the way detailed above for at least 72 hours before putting the bags in the communal area.
