Coronavirus (COVID19)

Grey Bin
People with COVID-19 symptoms who are self-isolating should store personal waste like used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths securely in disposable bags. When appropriate, these bags should be removed and placed into another bag and securely tied or sealed and kept separate from other wastes. This must be stored for at least 72 hours before being put in the usual domestic or household waste bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as normal (Fri 20 March)

Householders should not put gas bottles / cylinders in any of their bins at home as an alternative, as they may explode under heat or pressure and cause injury. Residents are advised to hold on to the cylinders or bottles until the national restrictions are lifted. Some bottles and cylinders are refillable. By contacting the gas provider or selling agent an alternative collection may be arranged (Tues 31 March)

Food Waste

Residents should note that food waste collections in the city have now resumed, following their previous suspension due to the Coronavirus outbreak. (Mon 21st Sept)
