Firstly, a shout out to all first responders and people who are involved in #frontline work. We could not do it without you.
Secondly an ask to all, please make sure that any of your Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) worn during your course of work is discarded properly. Please do not place used Masks, Gloves, Hand Wipes, Paper Towels into a recycling bin. These items should be placed carefully into the garbage and disposed of.
Ideally PPE is discarded into a garbage bin, the bag is tied off and secured and thrown away.
Recycling companies cannot recycle PPE items, it is not safe for our workers and processes. It is however safe to discard it and put it in the garbage.
Thank you to all for all you do in keeping us healthy and safe.
