All waste and recycling services are running as normal, Wiltshire Council has confirmed.

There are, however, "some minor delays" to mixed dry recycling collections following the introduction of new services.

Anyone with a blue-lidded bin or black box that has not been emptied on its new scheduled collection day should leave containers.

The council's contractors will visit "as soon as they can".

The local authority has also given waste-related guidance to those who have or might have Covid-19.

Its website says: "Waste tissues produced by someone who has or suspects they have Covid-19 should be placed in a plastic bag which should be tied when full. Disposable cloths or wipes used to clean hard surfaces such as kitchen worktops and bathrooms should also be placed in the same bag.

"This plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag, which should also be tied when full. The bags should be kept in a secure place until the individual’s test results are known.

"The bags should not be put out for collection or placed in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours (three days). After being stored for at least 72 hours (three days), please place these in your normal wheeled bin.

"If you don’t receive a wheeled bin collection, please make sure a council-issued bag label is placed on the outside of the double-bagged waste."
