Toronto residents under investigation for monkeypox are asked to double-bag food waste and tissues before disposing of them in the Green Bin and to double-bag bandages and gauze before disposing of them in the garbage. Any pet waste should also be double-bagged. Bags should be strong and properly tied and waste should be stored in secure bins with the lid closed until pickup.
