Waste disposal and cleaning guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) 

If you or someone in your house either has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or thinks that they may have it,  use your usual household products, such as detergents and bleach, to clean and get rid of the virus on frequently-touched surfaces - these will be very effective.

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into a second bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste in the room in which you are self-isolating. Keep these bags aside for at least 72 hours before putting into your usual external black/ grey household waste bin.

Other household waste can be disposed of as normal. Please use good personal hygiene when delivering and collecting your bin from the kerbside.
