Collections Thursday 21st January

Owing to the overnight snow, and the effect thats had on existing localised flooding, along with a number of fallen trees, we haven’t been able to collect everything scheduled for today.  We are confident that we know all the locations where access hasn’t been possible, and we’ll prioritise those collections tomorrow.  A small number of properties are still outstanding from Wednesday when the heavy rain caused collection problems.  We have details of where all these properties are, and they are our top priority for Friday.  With conditions easing we are confident that all collections due this week will have been made by the end of Friday.

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.
