Gritting roads and footpaths

4. Routes and bins

There are over 260 grit bins in Stockport

Use the salt in the grit bins provided by us to clear snow and ice from public roads and pavements. It's illegal and irresponsible to use this salt on your private property and driveways.

During periods of very bad weather we may need to prioritise treatment of the main road network. We also look after over 260 grit bins, which are to be used to clear the snow and ice from public roads and pavements.

The position of grit bins are chosen due to altitude, road gradient and the purpose of surrounding properties.

The link below will direct you to our map where you can find out which roads in your area are gritted when the winter weather hits and the location of grit bins.
