50 grit bins up for grabs

Order now in time for Christmas!

The weeks of snow and ice left many residents wishing they had a grit bin near their house. The Council puts 50 new grit bins on the street each year, but only if you ask for one. Not many of last year’s bins made it in to Burngreave, they were allocated to other parts of the city. If your street needs a grit bin for next year’s cold weather put your request in now.

Council will prioritise you for a grit bin for:

  • Roads with steep hills, bad bends, drainage problems, exposed sites and difficult junctions

  • Locations used extensively by the elderly, infirm or very young

To request a grit bin contact the Council on 273 4567. The grit bins are for everyone to use to keep the public footpaths and roads clear.
