Waste and recycling service - Coronavirus update

What to do with your waste if you have coronavirus symptoms

If you have symptoms of Coronavirus or live with someone who does, you must store your personal waste, for example, used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths, securely within disposable plastic bags. When appropriate, these bags should be removed and placed into another bag and securely tied or sealed and kept separate from other waste. This must be stored for at least 72 hours inside your property before being put in your non-recyclable waste bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

If you see our crews in the street please keep a safe distance from them of at least two metres. You should also wash your hands before and after putting your bins out for collection. This is to protect them and you. Please visit the Scottish Government’s website for advice on physical distancing.
