How to deal with your waste if you're self-isolating

The Government has advised that anyone who is self-isolating with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), including those with a diagnosis of the virus, should treat their household waste as follows:

  • 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 normal.
    The advice also says that when cleaning you should use your usual household products like detergents and bleach as these will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces. Clean frequently touched surfaces.

For more information, read the Government's stay at home guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
