Waste Disposal Advice - Coronavirus

As local authorities ramp up their coronavirus preparations, guidance has been issued to people with confirmed or possible Covid-19 on how to dispose of their waste.

This advice mirrors much of what was issued by Public Health England last week (see story).

The advice reads: “Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags.

These bags should be placed into a second bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste in the room in which you are self-isolating.

Keep these bags aside for at least 72 hours before putting into your usual black wheelie bin."
