Do you know how to dispose of waste if you’re self-isolating due to COVID-19? If you’re unwell or displaying symptoms, make sure you double bag potentially infected items & wait at least 72 hours before disposing of them.
And for everyone – please remember to wash your hands before handling recycling and rubbish, keep at least 2m from collection workers & clean your bin handles with disinfectant before and after collection. Thanks for everything you are doing to help to keep our collection workers safe.
