How to dispose of personal waste if you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19)

The Government advises that personal waste, such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths, should be stored securely in disposable rubbish bags. These bags should then be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste.

The Government advises that this bag should be put aside for at least 72 hours.

After that time, put in your usual external household waste bin for kerbside collection.
