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 room in which you are self-isolating.

Keep these bags aside for at least 72 hours before putting into your usual black wheelie bin.

People without wheelie bins who use authorised blue bags for their rubbish should place personal waste in a securely tied disposable rubbish bag (like a black bin bag) before placing in your blue sack. This also applies to those who use gull-proof sacks.

Recycling, glass, food and garden waste can be placed in your usual bins.

We thank you for your co-operation. You can find our latest advice here.
