We deliver sand bags upon request, to properties at imminent risk of flooding.

We do not issue sand bags "just in case", as they deteriorate over time and this may divert supplies away from more immediate needs.

Please note that we do not collect used sandbags.

If you think your property could be at risk of flooding we recommend you take precautions and obtain sandbags in advance privately.
