Keep Bins Clean & Safe

It's important to exercise caution when disposing of waste at work or at home.

Be sure to wash your hands before and after touching rubbish bins and remember not to touch your face.

Help us to #StopTheSpread and protect those around you.

GUIDELINES FOR THE PROPER HANDLING AND STORAGE OF DOMESTIC WASTE GENERATED BY ALL WHO HAVE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19:

1. All waste items (e.g. used tissues, disposable cleaning cloths, gloves, masks, etc.) that have been in contact with individuals who are confirmed or suspected cases of COVID-19 must be disposed of securely within a black refuse bag, separate from the rest of the household’s refuse.

2. When full, this black refuse bag must then be placed in a second black refuse bag (double bag) and tied to prevent any waste from spilling from the bag.

3. Double-bagged refuse bags must be stored separately for five (5) days in direct sunlight before being placed out for collection. The safest option would be to store bags for an additional week before the scheduled waste collection day. This will ensure that the COVID-19 virus is killed.
