New guidance has been issued in Liverpool on how to dispose of certain waste items to help keep refuse collectors safe during the virus outbreak.
Any household containing someone with Covid-19 symptoms is asked by the city council to dispose of waste differently to help limit the spread.
Personal waste, such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths, should now be dealt with as follows:
- Store in a tied bag
- Place first bag inside a second bag
- Keep the bag separate from other rubbish for 72 hours (three days)
- Place in your purple bin as usual after 72 hours
