Our teams are sadly seeing more littering of potentially dangerous items like face masks and latex gloves.While we encourage all residents to wear a face covering when out in public shopping or using public transport especially, please be mindful of our frontline workers having to pick up after people who choose not to dispose of them correctly.

We are asking for everyone’s cooperation not only due to the inconvenience, but also any potential infection issues associated with having to clean discarded latex gloves, protective face masks and tissues from our streets.

Please think about purchasing reusable masks so less goes to waste. If you have symptoms or feel unwell double bag your personal waste and store it safely for 72 hours before putting it in the black bin.
