In Leeds, all council tips will be closed, garden waste collections have been suspended and litter bins should not be used as they will not be emptied.

Personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags.

Please keep aside inside your property for at least 72 hours before putting out for collection (ie. keep it indoors and do not set out for collection until 3 days have passed after tying the second bag). The council has already issued information on how it is planning to ensure this essential service remains in place.

Cllr Athwal said: "I am asking that as a community, we pull together and endure some changes to services over the next few weeks".

"This means we will be stopping all brown garden waste bins, glass collections and food waste caddies from this week".

In East Sussex the 10 household recycling sites will close by the end of Monday.

He also warned that over the coming weeks waste collection teams may need to operate a reduced service, as some workers become ill or have to self-isolate.

These, and other hygiene products, should be bagged and placed in rubbish bins.

In its announcement the council said: "All 14 Household Waste and Recycling Centres will now be CLOSED until further notice".

Cheshire East asked everyone to wipe bin lids and handles. and Gateshead council asked people to wash their hands before they put anything in the bin.

Keep this waste separate from other waste in the room/household in which you are self-isolating. Please do not squash waste down into your bin after you've put it in there as this can prevent it falling out during the emptying process.

"Regular updates will be provided on the council's website and social media channels".

"Thank you for helping us to keep the city clean and running at this hard time".
