|What to do with your waste if you have Coronavirus symptoms||
If you have symptoms of Coronavirus or live with someone who does, you must store your personal waste for example used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths securely within a disposable plastic bag and then bagged again. The bags should be securely tied or sealed and kept separate from other waste. This must be stored for at least 72 hours inside your property before being put in your non-recyclable waste bin (Green Bin). Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
|Recycling and Waste Collections|
We plan to collect green bins as normal. Please ensure your bin is presented for collection for 6:30 am as there may be changes to your collection time. If you have symptoms of Coronavirus you must follow the guidance.
We currently plan to collect blue bins as normal. Please ensure your bin is presented for collection for 6.30am as there may be changes to your collection time. Do not put used tissues in your blue – put these in your green bin instead.
We plan to collect brown bins as normal for Permit Holders only. Please ensure your bin is out for 6.30am as there may be changes to your collection time.
We currently plan to collect food waste as normal. Please ensure your kerbside food waste bin is presented for collection for 6.30am as there may be changes to your collection time.
|Communal Bins||All our communal bin services are currently running.|
|Assisted Collections (including 4-weekly glass)||
This service is continuing to run as normal but we are unable to process any new applications at the moment.
|Collections of Bulky Waste Items||
We currently plan to process requests for bulky items as normal. However there may be changes to your collection time.

|Forthbank Waste Recycling Centre||
Our recycling centre is closed until further notice. This is to ensure we are following government guidance on restricting non-essential travel and contact. Please use the normal Household Collection Bin Service (Green, Blue, Grey & Brown) where practicable. Keep larger items within your property and once the site is open again we will update our website and you can then visit and use the Forthbank Recycling Centre at a later date. The safety of the public and our staff is of the primary concern at this time.
|Commercial Waste Collections||Service (and charges) will be suspended if businesses are required to close as a result of the virus restrictions. We will contact customers individually over the next few days for clarification on their position.|
|Litter Bins, Dog Waste and Street Cleansing||
Please also note we are running a reduced street cleansing service including street sweeping and litter bin emptying. Please take litter / dog waste home with you where possible.
