COVID-19 and Waste Management

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) have both issued guidance associated with the coronavirus and waste management.

Currently, there is no evidence that suggests managing residential wastes or recyclables represents a danger to the general public.
