Most people in Kilkenny are sanitising their hands and putting on face masks when out and about. 

But it is equally important to be Covid-aware at home. One area that has been identified as a transmission risk is leaving wheelie bins out for collection.

Householders are reminded to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 through waste collection by:

- leaving the bin out on the evening before collection is due

- cleaning handles of bins with disinfectant before and after collection

- disposing of wipes, cloths, gloves etc into the bin immediately after cleaning
