Queen City Disposal has some important information about how you should manage your trash for your safety and the safety of others if someone in your household has contracted the Coronavirus
Here are some recommendations from the CDC:
- Dedicate a lined can for the ill person.
- Use gloves when handling trash.
- Change all trash bins with tissues, masks, etc. daily.
- Tie the bag, then double-bag and tie it off.
- Place bags in a secure area out of reach from pets.
- Do not put trash bags out for collection for 72 hours.
- 72 hours is the estimated time the virus lives on surfaces.
- If you are sick, DO NOT put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known.
- Throw away any recyclable materials by someone with the virus.
- Always wash your hands after handling and disposing of trash.
