Salt bins, salt heaps, road gritting, treatment routes and advice on clearing snow from roads and paths.
When looking to place new salt bins, we review a number of factors including the:

We will fill salt bins twice during winter and again when we are told that they need refilling. However, the speed at which they can be refilled does depend on weather conditions, but we always make sure that priority roads are treated first.
You can use the salt in a salt bin to help with snow and ice on public roads and footpaths. You must not use it for private driveways, car parks or other non-public areas.
Salt for private roads and properties can be purchased from local builders merchants, who will normally deliver this to you.
You can find more advice on clearing snow on the Met Office website.
We have a number of strategic salt reserves stored in locations across the East Riding in case there is a national shortage and we are unable to buy salt.
