UPDATE: Household Waste and Recycling

The Isle of Wight Council has issued advice for households which have suspected coronavirus (Covid-19) infections for disposing of waste.

Follow these simple steps:

- Place personal waste (ie used tissues, wipes, kitchen towels and disposable cleaning clothes) into general waste

- Double bag waste to protect waste collection crews

- Keep this waste separate from other waste in the room/household in which you are self- isolating

- Keep aside inside your property for at least 72 hours (three days) before putting out for collection.

The Council is encouraging Islanders to continue to recycle and to split rubbish and recyclables.
