How Waste Disposal Has Changed In The Pandemic
Waste disposal and recycling have remained important following the Covid-19 outbreak, even when the government was asking us to Stay At Home.
Recycling centres were still an essential service especially during the second and third lockdowns. But how has the disposal of household waste and waste management changed?
Waste disposal services are extra busy
While trips to the tip are not illegal, calling out proper waste teams is much better for health and safety. CBS Waste has been working on even more domestic services jobs and our waste collection services are popular. We give customers a Waste Transfer Notice on jobs. Quotes can be requested online for domestic and commercial jobs.
The new way to bag rubbish
Some organisations, such as Cambridgeshire County Council and Suffolk Recycling, have strict rules especially if you’ve had Covid-19 and/or have had to self-isolate. Personal waste including PPE equipment must be double bagged, securely tied and kept apart from other rubbish for 72 hours. The bags should then be put out with normal waste.
Trips to the tip have changed
You need to book a slot to visit some waste and recycling centres and social distancing is in place. Extra hand washing is still advised and opening hours have also been changed at certain places. But luckily, most of the time, bins are emptied as normal.
Fires are a burning issue
Brighton & Hove Council is warning us not to burn waste and in Newcastle, people have been fined. Annoying neighbours, air pollution and fire risks should make us think twice. If you want a professional job, you should call on CBS Waste.
