How should I dispose of my face covering?

If you are using a disposable face covering, remember that you can only use it once and when you take it off it must be thrown away safely. If you’re not at home when you remove your face covering, place it in a plastic bag until you have an opportunity to dispose of it in your bin at home. 

You should always throw away disposable face coverings and gloves into your rubbish bin, not your recycling.
