Free grit

Be ready for snowy and icy conditions by collecting free grit on the weekend of 24-25 November

The council is offering residents and businesses in the London Borough of Sutton the opportunity to collect 10kg of free grit per household/business* to use on footpaths, pavements or roads in front of their homes or business premises.

You can also collect grit for your elderly friends and neighbours, or residents/businesses who don’t have cars. The free grit is available from the following locations:

* Woodcote Green Garden Centre:- Saturday 24 November, 9am - 5.30pm (The garden centre is open until 7pm that day, but we will only be giving out grit until 5.30pm.)
* Woodmansterne Lane, Wallington:- SM6 0SU: Sunday 25 November, 10am - 4pm
* Kimpton Park Reuse and Recycling Centre:- Saturday 24 November, 9am - 5pm
* Kimpton Park Way (off Oldfields Road, A217), Sutton, SM3 9QH:- Sunday 25 November, 9am - 2pm

In addition to these collection points, we will also be sending 50x 10kg bags to The Mount for collection by local residents.

We will also be arranging deliveries for residents that are on an assisted waste collection. If you already receive an assisted collection and are interested in receiving free grit this winter, please get in touch with our contact centre, where your details will be taken.

Grit at Kimpton Park Reuse and Recycling Centre and Woodcote Green Garden Centre will be ready bagged.

*Please note proof of residency/business in the London Borough of Sutton will be required for yourself and any other household/business you are collecting grit for. Please bring along relevant council tax, business rates (NNDR) or utility bills for each household or local business.
