Horsham District Council Waste Disposal Advice and Coronavirus

Horsham District Council are informing residents that waste from households with possible cases of coronavirus, or from cleaning areas where possible cases have been (this includes disposable cloths and tissues) should be dealt with in a particular way.

First, place all waste in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it when full.

The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.

The bag should be put in a suitable and secure place, away from children, for 72 hours.

Waste should not be put into communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.
