Salting and gritting - winter road gritting and salt bins

Salt bins - request new salt bin or salt bin filled

Salt bins are provided for the public to use on roads and footways and are generally sited at bends or hills where the risk of slipping on ice is greater. You can check the locations of all salt bins across Central Bedfordshire (PDF 65.9KB) .

Salt bins are not provided for people to use within their own private property. You can request a salt bin online or request a salt bin is refilled.

Salt bag scheme - Town and Parish Councils

We will deliver either one 1 tonne or one ½ tonne bag of road de-icing salt, free of charge, to any town or parish council that requests one.

We will do this in December, January and February if requested by the Town / Parish Council (link opens in new window).
