Waste and recycling updates

Waste guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection 

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths need to 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 house in which you are self-isolating. Keep aside for at least 72 hours before putting into your usual grey wheelie bin.

Recycling, food and garden waste can be presented as normal.
