If you have suspected or confirmed Coronavirus and are self-isolating, you need to double bag your used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths and wait 72 hours before putting it out for collection. For more information visit our page here.

Waste Less, Recycle More

This September, we are launching Gloucestershire’s NEW Waste Less, Recycle More Campaign to encourage people to buy what you need, eat what you buy and recycle any remaining food using your weekly recycling collection. Find out more here.

Householder Duty of Care

Householders must ensure that household waste is properly disposed of. The householder duty of care is provided by Section 34 (2A) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (inserted by the Household Waste Duty of Care Regulations 2005). A breach of the household duty of care would also attract an unlimited fine if convicted.

 

Steps you should take to fulfil your duty of care

If you have waste:

 

  • ensure that the person who takes control of your waste is licensed to do so
  • take steps to prevent it from leaving your control
  • store it safely and securely
  • prevent it from causing environmental pollution or harming anyone
  • describe the waste in writing and prepare a transfer note if you intend to pass the waste on to someone else
