At this difficult time, Birmingham City Council has made a general appeal to all residents not to overfill bins.
There are also special Central Government instructions for any household that is affected by the virus.
Birmingham City Council website states that if you or someone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms:
- Personal waste (such as used tissues) should be double bagged, tied securely and kept separate from other waste.
- Put aside for 72 hours (3 days) before putting it in your usual household bin.
- Please wipe handles and bin lids before and after use to minimise risk to our crews.
