Coronavirus (COVID-19) How to manage your waste
Your local District or Borough Council is responsible for the collection of your kerbside bins. Their bin crews are working really hard during this tough time to collect your waste and recycling. For any changes to your kerbside collections, please check your local council’s website.
Please wash down your bin handles before presenting for collection and remember to wash your hands after pulling your bins in and out. You can also help them by minimising your waste. With most of us spending more time at home, it’s tempting to declutter and have a big clear out. Now is a great time to think about whether you have items that can be reused or made into something else.
If you choose to wear masks or gloves when you go shopping, please take these back home with you to put in your bin after use; please do not litter or leave them in shopping trolleys. We all need to do our bit to try and reduce the spread of infection
Suffering from Coronavirus symptoms?
Please dispose of personal waste (such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths) by double bagging the waste and tie the bag securely or put in a sealed container. The bag or container should be kept separate from other waste for 72 hours before placing in your general waste bin. Tissues and cleaning cloths should never be placed in the recycling bin.
