The council has already issued information on how it is planning to ensure this essential service remains in place.
- Please dispose of your other household waste as normal.
The council said: "Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths should be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags.These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste.This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put out for collection on your next collection day". This includes gardening (unless you home-compost), large DIY jobs or house clearances.
- Please do not take this waste to your local Recycling Centre. Do not hand your rubbish to an unlicensed waste carrier for disposal.
Create more space in your recycling bin by squashing/flattening plastic, aluminium and cardboard items. You should not however compress rubbish in black bags, your black wheelie bin or authorised blue sack. We are therefore asking people to put out their bins for collection as normal for 7am on their scheduled day but if the bins are not emptied by 5pm please take them off the street and put them out again on the next scheduled collection day.
Do not put your glass box out for collection until it is full.
Park responsibly. More people staying at home has obviously led to more cars parked on residential streets, creating problems for our drivers who can not access some roads.
East Suffolk Council's customer services centre, at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft, has also closed for face-to-face enquiries.
A statement from the authority said: "The coronavirus has had an impact on our waste and recycling service workers which means we are now unable to carry out all bin collections".
Hazardous waste store for emergency services and hazardous waste.
