Safe disposal of these items can mean preventing the spread of germs. Place them in a plastic bag, tie the bag securely and then place it in the garbage. See below for more safe disposal information.

REMINDER: Do not flush these products down the toilet. These items do not break down quickly enough in the wastewater system - or at all - and can end up clogging sewers and pipes. Even if products claim to be flushable, these items should go in the garbage.

For up to date advice on disposal of masks and other materials where viruses like COVID-19 can reside, please refer to the World Health Organization's public advice.
