Safe disposal of household refuse

If household waste is not safely disposed of, it can pose a health risk. This briefing material has been produced for those who work in healthcare professions, the media and others who are looking for background understanding of hygiene and/or those who are responsible for providing guidance to the public on how to prevent the spread of infectious diseases in their homes. The hygiene practice advice given in this document is taken from the IFH/IPS training resource: HOME HYGIENE – prevention of infection at home: a training resource for carers and their trainers
