Coronavirus (COVID-19): how to dispose of your waste
Waste from households with possible cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), or from cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths and tissues), should be dealt with as follows:
- Place all waste in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it when full.
- The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.
- The bag should be put in a suitable and secure place, away from children, for 72 hours
- After waste has been stored for 72 hours it can be placed in the normal general waste bin
Please do not put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.
