Coronavirus waste disposal advice

Published: Thursday, 19 March 2020

Important advice on waste disposal around Covid 19.

Tissues, disposable gloves and other related items used by anyone with suspected Covid 19 and those cleaning up afterwards, should be double bagged, then stored securely for 72 hours before being thrown away inside your usual black sack waste.

You should not put this waste out with your usual rubbish for weekly collections until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours
