Welcome to Cumbria and the Lake District

1st September 2009

Serious now have a depot in Penrith, Cumbria following the move of Directors Joanna and David Birkett to the area.

Business has got off to a good start with the distribution of leaflets to households and businesses in rural areas who are likely to rely on private sewage systems such as septic tanks, cesspools and sewage treatment plants.

Many of our new customers have previously used unregistered farmers to remove waste from their septic tanks, which would normally end up on a field. We urge anybody who is investigating having their tanks emptied to check 3 things -

  • Are they a registered waste carrier?

  • What is their waste carrier number?

  • Where is the waste being taken for disposal?

With fines for polluting now reaching £50,000, we want to warn as many people as we can as to the dangers of being irresponsible with their waste.

Anybody who wants more information can contact our Penrith office on 01768 868950.
