North Somerset Council is urging anyone with symptoms of coronavirus to follow Government advice when disposing of personal waste.
The council and its contractors Biffa are also asking for the public’s patience and help ahead of likely service disruption in the coming weeks as the infection reduces staffing.
The latest Government guidance on disposing of personal waste is for anyone with symptoms, including those diagnosed with the infection who must remain at home until they are well. It also applies to people in households with someone showing symptoms that may be caused by coronavirus (a new continuous cough and/or high temperature).
Personal waste, such as tissues and disposable cleaning cloths, should be stored securely in disposable rubbish bags. These should then be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste within your home. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your black wheelie bin for collection.
