‘Covid Waste’ – A Photo Essay

After you remove your PPE or face covering, wash your hands or use hand sanitiser.

If you need to throw away used face coverings or PPE, such as gloves:

  • dispose of them in your ‘black bag’ waste bin at home or at work, or a litter bin if you’re outside.
  • do not put them in a recycling bin as they cannot be recycled through conventional recycling facilities.
  • take them home with you if there is no litter bin – do not drop them as litter.
