Millom floods – waste centre hours extended

Opening hours at Millom’s Household Waste Recycling Centre, Red Hills, will be extended to make it easier people affected by flooding to dispose of damaged items.

The site will now open seven days a week, from 8am to 4pm, until further notice. In addition, the usual permit system will be relaxed to allow householders to use larger vehicles to clear items. The council is also working to have skips placed in affected areas.

Members of the public affected by the flooding, who will be making an insurance claim, are strongly advised to speak to their insurance company prior to the disposal of any flood damaged items.  Insurance companies usually wish to inspect the damage as part of any claim.

A spokesperson for Cumbria County Council, said:

“We’re taking this step to try and make life a little bit easier for people. There is likely to be a lot of people trying to use the site so please be patient and make sure you speak to your insures before you dispose of anything.”
