We are very sorry to all those affected by delays to waste, recycling and garden collections as the crews get used to new routes and vehicles. We are working with Suez to improve the situation, and we’re providing updates with latest information.

Register a Cooling Tower, Evaporative Condenser or Heat Exchanger

Under the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992, you'll need to tell us if:

  • you have a cooling tower or evaporative condenser, including those within air conditioning systems
  • the person responsible for a cooling tower or evaporative condenser changes
  • the cooling tower or evaporative condenser is removed
  • there are any other changes affecting the cooling tower or evaporative condenser

We need to make sure the water system is kept clean and well maintained to stop the spread of infectious disease include legionella, and to ensure that measures are taken to prevent any infection spreading among employees and the public.

Registering a cooling tower

You can visit GOV.UK to register a cooling tower and send us a plan of the layout of your site showing the location of the tower or condenser.
