What to put in your bin
When cleaning you should use your usual household products, like detergents and bleach, as these will be very effective at getting rid of the Coronavirus on surfaces.
Clean frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, handrails, remote controls and table tops. This is particularly important if you have an older or vulnerable person in the house.
Personal waste (such as 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. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste black bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
You can find information on this page on how you should dispose of a number of household and garden items. This covers which items should be
- placed in your black household waste bin
- placed in your brown recycling bin
- placed in your green garden waste bin
- taken to the nearest Household Recycling Centre (Great Northern Terrace tip)
You can leave additional recycling next to your brown recycling bin in clear or white plastic bags, the collection crew must be able to clearly see that the additional waste is recyclable.
We will take action against residents who do not use their bins correctly.
