Coronavirus – Waste Disposal

The current advice for disposing of waste for anyone with symptoms, including those diagnosed with the infection, is on the Somerset Waste Partnership website:

It states that personal waste (e.g. used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste within your own room. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as usual. This advice will be updated as required.
