Waste Disposal Advice during COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
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, disposable cleaning cloths, gloves and other PPE ) should be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put 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.
