Grit bins

Grit bins are provided throughout the city to provide salt, salt/sand mixtures for local residents or any other road user should they choose to use the facility.

If the grit bin needs topped up, you can report it online or by calling 01224 241511 with details of the grit bin location.

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 the team to refill them all. We will concentrate resources on gritting main roads and priority areas during these periods. 

Please be careful whilst making use of grit bins, as it is common for them to be used by some members of the public for the disposal of rubbish, such as glass, sharp metal and, in some instances, syringes which could result in injury to the user should they inadvertently come into contact with this material.

You can view grit bins in your area on the grit bins map.
