It is a common misconception that if something looks clean and smells clean, it’s safe. In fact, germs can hide in any surfaces of your home and even your workplace is not an exemption. By using a certain cleaning product along with a scrubber, the fact still remains, that surface is still contaminated and can potentially transmit a contagious disease.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the public is advised to stay in the confines of their home. Face masks or surgical masks, gloves and disinfectants have become essential components of an individual on a daily basis. This is to minimise the threat of contracting the virus. Furthermore, proper hygiene practices are now a trending topic as COVID-19 hit a widespread scare around the globe.
In order to emphasise our precautionary measures in and out of the household setting, we must not ignore the most important part of maintaining a clean and free from infectious disease environment. We should tend to our rubbish regularly and have a better understanding of how to dispose of it properly.
How to dispose of potentially infectious rubbish?
Disposing of potentially infected waste and all related waste should adhere to the existing regulation known as clinical waste. Here’s a comprehensive step you can follow at home if ever you will encounter this certain situation.
- Place your disposables in a secured and suitable bag or container
- Place your rubbish into a second rubbish bag as much as possible
- Secure your rubbish bag and tie it properly
- Put aside the rubbish bag for at least 72 hours, then place it inside your regular waste bin
You’re not only protecting and keeping your family safe, but you are also helping in minimising the transmission of infectious materials to our waste transporters and the environment. Other household waste should be disposed of normally. If you want to enhance your skills in reducing your disposables, you might want to check this site to better your ways in reducing, reuse and recycling at home.
In recent research, it shows that coronavirus does not survive on surfaces longer than 72 hours. As a result, simple yet comprehensive guidance on touching surfaces that are potentially infected with the COVID-19 virus have been provided:
- Leave your stuff for 72 hours
- It can last up to 24 hours on cardboards
- While on plastic and metal lasts up to 72 hours
- If waste materials are bagged and left for 72 hours, it should be safe to handle
Disposing of your rubbish regularly especially during a viral outbreak is to avoid transmission of potentially infected waste and passing it to others in your household, your workplace and beyond.
