Coronavirus waste disposal advice

Please see the latest advice below from the website about how householders need to handle their waste if they are in self-isolation due to suspected Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or have been diagnosed with the illness.

Disposal of waste

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 before being put in your usual external household waste bin.

Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
