All grit bins are checked by Surrey County Council and filled before the start of the winter season. They are filled again after any snow. The grit should only be used on the roads and is not for personal use by residents on their own property. Theft of the grit can lead to shortages which can cause a danger to motorists.

If you need grit or salt for your own property, you can buy it from major builders’ merchants or large garden centres. Contact Surrey County Council, e-mail, or call 0300 200 1003 for more information.
