We understand the concern that the coronavirus is generating. While for many people it will be a mild illness, for older people and those with underlying health conditions it can be a more serious illness and we all need to work together to protect these more vulnerable members of our communities. There are some really simple steps we can all take to protect ourselves and others to stop the spread of Coronavirus, such as regularly washing your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.

Coronavirus advice for disposal of wastePersonal 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. For more advice while at home visit here.
