Gritting, Ice and Snow

Worcestershire County Council is responsible for providing a winter service on adopted public highways within the county except for motorways and trunk roads. The purpose of the winter service is to reduce the effects of snow and ice on the roads by treating the highway with salt. The service is essential for public safety and to the national and local economy in maintaining ice free roads.

Grit Bins

Grit bins are available across the county of Worcestershire and maintained with stocks of a salt/grit mixture where they provide the roads in the area with a suitable resource to safety. They are provided for use on the public highway only (including footways).

If you want to apply for a grit bin or report an empty one, please contact us using the form on the next page.
