If your property or business has recently experienced flooding issues and you used sandbags as a method of flood prevention, please keep them for possible future use.
Wet sandbags will rot or deteriorate quickly so it’s important make sure you’ve dried out your sandbags so they can be reused to protect your home.
When the water has receded, separate your sandbags, lay them out or stand them up in your garden or shed and let them dry out thoroughly.
Once they’re dry, you can store them for use again.
