Waste guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) 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 a second bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste in the house in which you are self-isolating. Keep aside for at least 72 hours before putting into your usual grey wheelie bin.

We recommend that people without wheelie bins who use authorised beige bags for their rubbish should place personal waste in a securely tied disposable rubbish bag (like a black bin bag) before placing in your beige sack.

Recycling, food and garden waste can be presented as normal. Latest waste and recycling updates
