Coronavirus: Storing waste advice – from NFDC

Advice on how to store your rubbish for anyone with confirmed or possible Coronavirus or if you are self-isolating (COVID-19): 16/03/2020

• Double bag all waste that contains tissues
• Do not put it out for collection for at least 72 hours

Double bag: Personal waste (such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloth) should be stored separately to other waste, put in a rubbish bag  and then put into a second bag / black sack.  This should be tied and kept separate from other waste in the room/s in which you are self-isolating. 

Keep aside for at least 72 hours: Do not put it out for collection for at least 3 days. As an example, if you have filled/tied a bag on a Monday and your collection is due on a Thursday, that bag can be put out for collection on Thursday morning. However, if you have filled/tied a bag on a Monday and your collection is due on a Wednesday, you would need to hold onto that bag until your collection day the following week.

Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

This advice is based on guidance form central government, designed to prevent transmission of the virus.

Annual Parish meeting postponed.

The Annual Parish meeting (due to take place on 24th April) will be postponed. The legislation states that it must be held between 1st March and 1st June.  However, NALC are in discussion with the Government and it seems highly likely this legislation will be over-ridden by the Government meaning Councils will be able to hold it later in the year.  You will be advised at a later date.
