Don't put masks, gloves or other personal protective equipment (PPE) in your recycling bin. They cannot be recycled. Please put them in your general waste bin.

If you have coronavirus symptoms or a member of your household has symptoms, you need to take extra precautions before throwing away any PPE or other waste.  This means double bagging these items and storing them for 72 hours before placing them in the bin.
