As we respond to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have streamlined our resources to prioritise delivery of essential services, such as waste collections and burials and cremations. As a result all of our recycling centres and civic amenity sites are closed.
Waste disposal and cleaning guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19)
Use normal household products like detergents and bleach to clean frequently-touched surfaces.
Please securely store all personal waste, such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths in rubbish bags. Place these bags into a second bag, tie it securely and keep it 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 external black or grey household waste bin.
