Recycling and Waste

Collections Friday 17th September

Like lots of Councils and businesses we have increasing numbers of our crews who are currently not in work due to either a positive Covid test, or a Track and Trace instruction to self-isolate.  We are doing everything we can to cover collections across all services, but staff availability is changing hour by hour, even during the working day.  If your street is listed here we will do our best to get back to you, but staff availaibilty may not make this possible.  If you have reported a missed collection we do have you on our list to return to, but please bear with us, as we may not be able to return within the usual two days at the moment.  There's no need to contact us again if we are running late, as we already have your details.  We are prioritising the missed collections for food waste and household rubbish, becasue of the odour and hygeine implications.  If you have coronavirus or suspect they you have coronavirus (temperature over 38C and persistent cough) please ensure that you double-bag all used tissues or disposable wipes and store them for 72 hours (3 days) before putting them in your household rubbish bin.  It will protect our staff and enable us to run our services.

Disposal of used tissues and disposable wipes.

This is a short video to show residents how to safely dispose of their used tissues and disposable cloths/wipes during the current coronavirus outbreak.

 

 

Individuals with confirmed COVID-19 who have been assessed as suitable for self-isolation can store their personal waste (e.g.; used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths) securely within 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 your usual domestic or household rubbish bin. Other household rubbish can be disposed of as normal."

The principle behind this is that after 72 hours outside the body the virus is no longer viable and the relevant waste (suitably double bagged) can be put into household rubbish and collected as normal.

It is only the waste that is heavily contaminated, such as tissues that have been coughed in and cleaning cloths that may also be heavily contaminated that are required to be double bagged and quarantined for 72 hours, regular household rubbish and recycling should be treated as normal.
