To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, Public Health England has recommended that residents who are self isolating double-bag their rubbish, including disposable cloths, tissues and any masks that may have been worn.

If you or your household is self isolating, please put your waste in a black bag, tie it, place into another black bag and tie it again. Be careful not to contaminate your recycling with any general rubbish.

Keep all rubbish bags aside for at least 72 hours before putting out on your normal collection day, ensuring they are kept separate from your recycling and out of reach of children and pets.
