Food Waste Bin
Food waste collections ceased to allow prioritisation of general waste collections. Householders are asked to combine food waste with their general waste rather than presenting their kitchen caddie (Fri 20 March)
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)
