We do not deliver sandbags to help protect private property or commercial property.
Some Town and Parish Councils hold their own local stocks of empty sandbags and sand to assist local communities.
Residents and businesses who believe they might be at risk of flooding are advised to take proactive steps to protect their property. This could include installing their own flood protection measures or retaining their own stock of sand/sandbags.
During a declared emergency and only at the request of the Emergency Services or Lincolnshire Resilience Forum, we will work with the lead agency to endeavour to help residential properties. Priority will be given to the most vulnerable members of the community who are least able to help themselves.
Empty sandbags are available from our Customer Access Points (except Horncastle) priced at 30p each.
