Can I have my pallets/runners back?

Unfortunately not. Your delivery has to be transported to Latchford on the pallets / runners so we are unable to let you have them back.

What should I do if our address or bank details have changed?

Please let us have your new details, in writing. Don’t forget to quote your supplier code. You can either:

I am VAT registered but do not have a copy of my VAT certificate. Can you still buy my cans?

We will still be able to buy your cans but we will be unable to pay you VAT. You can invoice us separately for the VAT once you have received our self-billing invoice. Your VAT invoice, along with a copy of the self-billing invoice should be sent to Robbie Davies, Novelis Recycling, Latchford Locks Works, Thelwall Lane, Warrington WA4 1NN.
