With our waste collection days on Tuesdays, residents should be aware of the following
Temporary changes to waste collections
WCC are working hard to minimise disruption to regular waste collections. They ask for our help and understanding with
Longer collection running times
It is taking longer for crews to complete their rounds as:
there is more waste produced as people stay at home…
leading to more trips during individual rounds to offload the waste
the teams are also observing social distancing guidance during the rounds
and the departures from the depot are also being spaced out to support this guidance too
Putting bins out earlier
Due to collections taking longer, we need to start some rounds earlier. Please place bins out for collection the evening before your scheduled collection day, or by 6.15am on your collection day as per your waste calendar. This is 45 minutes earlier than the usual time to allow the staff to stagger their start times and reduce their contact with others.
Managing waste responsibly from household with suspected Coronavirus
If you or someone in your household has COVID-19 – or shows symptoms of COVID-19 – please help us prevent the spread of the virus by taking the following steps with materials that may be contaminated, such as waste tissues, disposable cloths or wipes used to clean surfaces.
Step one – Place materials into a plastic bag and tie it when full
Step two – Once the bag is full, double bag it in a second bin bag or plastic bag and tie it up.
Step three – Store the bags for 72 hours (three days) and then place them in your normal wheeled bin.
If you don’t receive a wheeled bin collection, please make sure a council-issued bag label is placed on the outside of the double-bagged waste.
