The location of bins is strictly controlled and they tend to be authorised on roads which are away from precautionary gritted routes and have steep inclines.
In rural and urban areas, residents associations and town councils can provide grit bins in locations that have been agreed with us. We will replenish these grit bins.
We will refill grit bins before the start of each winter season (October to November).
We will carry out further re-fills depending on the weather.
If you find an empty grit bin please report this to us and we will arrange for it to be refilled.
