Across the borough there are over 500 grit bins. These tend to be located at road junctions or at the top or bottom of hills. They contain grit that residents can use to treat small sections of the public highway (road and pavement). You should not use the grit from grit bins to treat driveways or paths on private land.

Navigate or search the map below to find your nearest grit bin.
