Waste Services

Street cleansing and residual waste collections

Our aim is to continue providing waste collections and street cleansing services as normal, in line with all government guidelines. If that changes we’ll let you know here.

Double-bag it

If you are concerned about disposing of waste that has come into contact with the COVID-19 virus, we would ask that this waste is, as a minimum, double-bagged prior to collections. This is to maintain public health, the welfare of our collection crews and of course to help ensure that others are suitably protected.


Precautions

In line with government advice, front line services are obviously taking precautions to ensure the health of our staff and residents. As such, we have enacted the following measures:

  • Our staff, inclusive of our drivers and waste operatives have been asked to adhere to social distancing measures
  • All of our staff have been given the ability to sanitise properly as they go about their work
  • All our front line employees have mandatory obligation to wear gloves.
