It is set to become part of our daily life for a little while yet, so just what is the best way to dispose of PPE?
Any disposable PPE, such as gloves and masks, should be discarded into the general waste bin and not the recycling bin. These items should be double bagged to reduce the danger of contaminating the crews who collect our household waste.
The Local council services such as bulky and garden waste collections are starting to resume and some local household waste recycling centres are beginning to reopen, but waste companies have said it must be done safely. This includes booking an appointment to the relevant waste site, which can be done on the KCC website.
The advice comes in a statement thanking people for helping keep waste services going during the pandemic, issued by the Environmental Services Association (ESA), representing the major private recycling and waste management companies, along with the packaging industry and Government bodies.
At Easy Clear Out we have reopened our services but with extra precautions in place to make it safe for our team and our customers, the details can be found here.
