Commercial waste customers: if you stop operating please tell us by email at businesswaste@newcastle-staffs.gov.uk with your name, business name and contact details.  It will save us resources if we don’t need to visit you because you are shut.  If you continue to trade, you may find  that our collection service comes to you on a different day to the one you’re used to.

Disposal of used tissues and disposable wipes:

If you have coronavirus or suspect that 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.

Garden waste:

Please do not put your garden waste bin out with your household rubbish bin this week. Going forward, put it out on your next household waste collection day.

If your garden waste collection was due week commencing 30th March your collection is delayed by a week, and should be put out with your household rubbish bin week commencing 6th April.

If your garden waste collection was due last week (commencing 23rd March) your collection of garden waste should be put out with your household rubbish bin week commencing 13th April.

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.
