As the impact of COVID-19 has spread, Leesburg has become increasingly concerned about the potential for improper or careless handling of waste materials that may bear the COVID-19 virus.

As a precautionary measure, please consider the following for residents, homeowners and businesses: 

      a) Please ensure all personal hygiene products, used tissues, paper towel, sanitary wipes, face masks, gloves, and similar items are disposed of in plastic garbage bags. Garbage bags should be tied securely for disposal.

      b) If you are sick or caring for someone who is sick: all personal waste should be double bagged in plastic garbage bags. Securely tie all bags shut and dispose of as regular residential garbage.

 We request your support in the above, and we are prepared to discuss and address concerns that you may have regarding this approach and to respond in a manner that provides appropriate protections to our employees and to the public.
