The Government’s Influenza Pandemic Plan and Framework lists waste as an essential service (page 142). 

WasteMINZ is now investigating with central government the support available to our sector on that basis. We will update all our members as soon as details are available. 

For those businesses and organisations looking for more information generally on COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), including health, travel, education, business and community issues, the Government has created a new website packed with links and advice – Unite Against COVID-19.
