In the simplest terms, a gully is an outside drain that deals with excess water run-off, preventing pooling and waterlogging. In domestic settings they are typically found in front and back gardens, and can be configured to handle wastewater from washing machines, sinks and similar kitchen and bathroom fixtures, in addition to rainwater. In commercial or public settings they’re often found by roads, allowing for excess water to drain away from the highway.
Over time, gullies can accumulate dirt, waste and pollutants which threaten their efficiency. This is why Northants Waste Control provides gully cleaning services to domestic and commercial clients around Northampton, Milton Keynes and all locales within Bedfordshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.
