Green refuse bins may not be emptied for the next few weeks. Running on a limited staff, councils are concentrating on collecting black bin and food waste.
People are advised to disinfect the handles or top part of the bin after use or before collection, to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
We would advise that recycled waste be placed in bin liners and kept off the floor or stored off the floor outside to avoid attracting rodents.
Once the service resumes, you can empty the recycled waste into the green bin. Bin liners of any kind are forbidden in the recycled waste and so these will need to be removed or refuse collectors may not empty the bin.
