Douglas Borough Council’s waste services team are urging householders to minimise their domestic waste after coronavirus restrictions led to the suspension of its kerbside collection service.

Householders are being reminded that in the current situation no side waste, i.e. rubbish bags left at the side of wheelie bins, will be accepted.

Only household waste deposited in the bin with the lid left securely down will be collected.

A council spokesperson added: "When you set your bin out for collection, the refuse crews would appreciate it if you could disinfect the handles and then thoroughly wash your hands after you have taken the bin back in once emptied. The crews handle hundreds of bins every day and give this advice to try to reduce any cross contamination."
