Fingal County Council tweetz:
Please be advised that surgical gloves are not recyclable. When visiting our recycling centres please take them home and dispose of them with your normal refuse.
Please do not put them in the recycling containers there or leave them on the ground for our staff to clear up.
Same message applies for carparks of shops. Take your dirty gloves home with you and dispose of them in the bin, or if there is a waste bin in the car park use that.
Taking the gloves off correctly will contain any contaminates safely inside. #COVID19Ireland https://t.co/vOnzSm8Plq

Still happening at my local supermarket – customers loading up their cars, and chucking their latex gloves on the ground. The bin is a few metres away. Don’t get it… #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/0WnKuQ9TY1

Seen quite a few about… >_<
And masks too, what is it with people throwing such dirty items on the ground?
Dublin Fire Brigade have left them at scenes of accidents for decades. Common sight in Dublin left where they have been working at a scene.
hope you remind them of that the next time they cut you out of your car
I can’t believe no-one has mentioned Bodger’s sublime headline…
I was in the supermarket at the weekend. Lots of trolleys had wipes or gloves left in them for the staff to clean up. Absolute scumbags. No manners, no guilt, sure let someone else take responsibility for me being an a whole. Community spirit my a##s. Its okay, its all about mobile phones.
Why do people thnik it’s fine to litter in public places at all…?
The worst are those people who throw condoms away in public and sometimes they’re even used.
It’s basic respect for each other… In not treating public places like it’s your own personal property..
Now the problem is looking at least five times as bad…
