Grit bins throughout the city provide salt and salt/sand mixtures for you to use in your local area.
Use our map to see where the grit bins are in your area. Housebuilders and developers may have provided additional bins that won't be on our map. We do not fill grit bins that have been provided by others.
Please be careful when using grit bins. Sometimes people use them to dispose of rubbish, such as glass, sharp metal and syringes, which could injure you if you accidentally touch it.
During prolonged periods of bad weather, all of the city’s grit bins may run empty at the same time and it will take time for us to refill them all. We will focus our resources on gritting main roads and priority areas during these periods.
You can report an empty or damaged grit bin online.
