In addition to the 360 miles of routes we grit in winter, we provide salt bins at key points to encourage 'self help' when roads are icy.
Note: Salt, or 'grit', in these bins is not for use on footpaths.
Report salt bin problems
We inspect and refill the salt bins we're responsible for between November and April.
Report a salt bin problem, such as:
- litter inside salt bins
- empty salt bins
- broken or damaged salt bins
Find out how to make other salt bin enquiries.
