Grit is provided on a self-help basis for community use. Grit is for use in public areas, not private paths and drives. If a grit bin is not looked after or is repeatedly vandalised, it will be removed.
Scroll and zoom the map to your area. Grit bin locations are indicated by a yellow square.
Grit bins are located in areas that are not on a priority gritting route.
When deciding on the location of a grit bin, we will take into account a number of issues such as:
if a route is on a steep slope, on a tight bend or particularly prone to icing
if local residents agree on a suitable location
where there is special need such as near sheltered houses, or a school crossing patrol
