Coronavirus (COVID19) Waste Advice

Waste advice for those with confirmed or potential Coronavirus COVID19

HM Government have provided specific advice on cleaning and the disposal of waste if you or anyone in your household are experiencing confirmed or possible coronavirus infection.

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can 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 (do not leave the waste in a public area during this time)
  • Put the rubbish in your usual external household waste bin
