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.

Councillor Anna Richardson, city convener for sustainability and carbon reduction, said: "We know that these are hard times for anyone delivering front line services". This includes gardening (unless you home-compost), large DIY jobs or house clearances.

The GMCA will be reviewing the situation and will open the Recycling Centres as soon as it is safe to do so and following government advice.

Continue to keep rubbish and recycling separated. Do not hand your rubbish to an unlicensed waste carrier for disposal.

East Dunbartonshire families face disruption to their bin collection service because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Park responsibly. More people staying at home has obviously led to more cars parked on residential streets, creating problems for waste drivers who can not access some roads.

Manchester City Council said food and garden bins would be collected fortnightly instead of every week and should be put out alongside general waste.

If you are on a new property without a bin, you can request one online or by calling 09 301 0101, but no bin removals, exchanges or repairs can be done at this time.

"In order to protect members of the public and employees, all 16 recycling sites will be closed until they can be operated safely". Visits to HRCs are not covered in the list of reasons for people to leave their homes.

"As a result we will be prioritising the collection of black waste bins and green recycling bins", the authority said.

"We wish to remind people that we have limited capacity in our collection vehicles and so we need residents to help".

"Please note that kerbside collections of waste and recycling continue, so please place your bags and recycling out for your usual collection times".
