In relation to supports for persons with long-term incontinence, I refer the Deputy to my reply to  Question 154 of 22nd September 2020, and note that the position is unchanged. In addition, the MyWaste.ie website has advice for household on managing waste during the current Covid-19 pandemic, including in households where someone is infected or is self-isolating.  Full details are available at: https://www.mywaste.ie/coronavirus-and-your-waste/.

The Mywaste.ie website also contains advice on how households should dispose of  various waste materials including medical waste such as medicines, inhalers and clinical waste, at the following link https://www.mywaste.ie/page-what-to-do-with/.
