Grit Bin Locations

We have recently conducted a full grit bin audit and would like to thank our wonderful grit bin volunteers for all their help.

We are aware some bins are damaged with cracks and holes. We have started replacing these with new bins made from recycled plastic.

We are donating our old bins to schools, who will be using them for garden and conservation projects.

All bins have an allocated reference number so please quote this when contacting us to report any problems or low grit levels (you can request for a bin to be refilled if grit levels fall below 60%).

Using the grit bins

Anyone can use the salt in these bins for public areas.

Make sure you use a shovel or a spade to get the salt out of the bin. It is very corrosive and could damage your hands if you pick it up. It is illegal to use the salt on your own land, and you could be prosecuted for stealing.
