Double bag black bin waste if suffering symptoms
The Greater Cambridge Shared Waste Service has published advice on
handling waste if your household is displaying symptoms of Coronavirus.
If you're experiencing the main symptoms - a new, continuous cough and/or a
high temperature - please be very careful when disposing of your personal
waste (including used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths/wipes) at home.
The advice for disposal of this waste is as follows:
It should be put in a plastic rubbish bag and tied when full
The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied
It should be kept separate from other waste in suitable secure place on
your property for 72 hours before being placed in the black bin as
The principle behind this method is that after 72 hours outside the body, the
virus is no longer viable. This approach will help keep bin collection crews as
safe as possible.
Other household rubbish and recycling should be treated as normal.
If you or anyone in your home is self-isolating or is confirmed as having
Coronvirus, Cambridgeshire County Council are politely asking that you do not
go to any of their Household Recycling Centres.
