Warning over Arun glazing scam


A WARNING has been issued by Arun District Council about a window recycling scam.

The council has reported that cold callers have been approaching residents in council houses, including properties that were previously council houses, across the district offering to buy back double glazing on the council’s behalf.

The purchase is said to be part of a recycling scheme and the caller has asked the occupier to arrange an appointment for a return visit. But a council spokesman said: “We urge residents not to allow access to anyone without prior notification and valid identification.

“We are currently carrying out repair work to properties in various locations within our district, but we always notify residents by letter that we are coming.

“Please be aware that Arun District Council do not operate any schemes involving buying double glazing for recycling. We would encourage all residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity from cold callers to trading standards.”
