Each year, households nationwide, put waste down their sinks and toilets, causing blockages to the sewage systems. It’s not only bad for the environment, it causes misery and inconvenience to lots of people, through the bad smells and blocked sewers, all at a huge cost.
We all need to work together and take action to ensure cleaned water is returned safely to our rivers and seas by keeping waste out of our sinks and toilets.
By following some simple steps you can keep water flowing, our sewer system clear and save any problems when it comes to your drains.
Put all of your waste in the bin and recycle where possible. This includes grease, fat, oil and food waste, which can be recycled in a food caddy or composter. To avoid food scraps going down the sinkhole, you can order a FREE sink strainer from Anglian Water.

It is our responsibility as your landlord to take precautions to prevent Legionella bacteria being present in the water systems. However, as a customer, you also have a part to play.
