Herefordshire council announces support to dispose of water damaged items
New temporary measures will help residents affected by flooding to dispose of water damaged items following Storm Dennis.
Herefordshire Council are providing a service to collect flood damaged household items from outside residents’ houses. However, we need to ensure that the help is available for those who need it most.
If your house has been flooded and you have water damaged items to dispose of please go online to register for help online www.herefordshire.gov.uk/floods or phone 01432 260051. You will be asked for the following details:
- Contact name
- Contact telephone number (essential for us to get back in touch to confirm date that help will be provided)
- Height of flood water at worst
- Number of houses flooded in the area
- Are items already outside ready for collection?
- Quantity of items to be collected
All Household Recycling Centres in Herefordshire are also waiving the need for a permit for commercial type vehicles and trailers until Sunday 1 March, for any resident with flood damaged items they need to dispose of.
Normal rules prohibiting the use of these facilities by businesses and the deposit of commercial waste still apply.
Opening times and locations can be found here: www.herefordshire.gov.uk/recycling
For the latest updates, please keep checking the Herefordshire Council website and follow @HfdsCouncil on Facebook and Twitter.
