Failing to properly dispose of personal protective equipment (PPE) will hurt the environment and could spread COVID-19
STAMFORD, Conn., April 7, 2020 /3BL Media/ – National nonprofit Keep America Beautiful® issued an urgent call today for all Americans to properly dispose of cleaning supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE), including used sanitizing wipes, masks, and plastic gloves. These belong in the trash, not on the ground.
Regulations may be shifting in communities due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and CDC guidelines. Many communities have temporarily suspended recycling programs because of worker safety and other limitations. As always — look up what you can recycle locally.
Keep America Beautiful® is not advising the general public to use PPE to pick up litter or manage their recyclables or waste in their homes given they are in short supply and desperately needed by the medical community.
