If I'm self-isolating or have coronavirus symptons, can I still put refuse in the black wheelie bin?
The most up to date advice from PHE states those with confirmed cases or self-isolating can store personal waste (used tissues etc) securely within disposable bags. These should be placed into another bag, securely tied and kept separate from other waste. It must be stored for at least 72 hours before going into your waste bin. Other household waste can be disposed of as normal. Principle is that after 72 hours outside the body the virus is no longer viable & relevant waste (suitably double bagged) can be collected as normal.
