It’s really important that we all keep safe during the current situation, and follow Government guidance. At the same time, let’s spare a thought for the local environment and Ceredigion County Council’s waste collection crews.

Discarded masks and gloves pose a risk to wildlife, waste collectors and the general public. So, as part of Caru Ceredigion, help keep them safe and our beautiful countryside, beaches and streets clean by doing the right thing.

Disposable masks, gloves, tissues and any other personal waste shouldn’t be discarded and they’re not recyclable. They should be put in the non-recyclable, ‘black bag’ waste. Black bags containing these items should be double-bagged before putting out for collection.

When out and about, dispose of these items in the general waste litter bins. Signs advising of this will soon feature on litter bins in Ceredigion’s town centres.

Help to keep Ceredigion safe. If you have any enquiries, contact Ceredigion County Council on 01545 570881 or email Visit the Coronavirus page for all the latest local Coronavirus-related advice and information.
