Grit Bins in Moray

Grit Bins/Grit Piles have been provided at strategic locations around Moray inline with our Winter Maintenance Policy.  The policy states that Grit Bin or Grit Piles can be placed on low priority areas, providing they don't obstruct resident or road users

These may be used by anyone to assist with gritting of public roads and footways, footpaths and cycle tracks.  However these are not for use on private roads, paths and driveways, instead salt supplies and grit bins can by purchased from DIY stores, builder's merchants and other local shops.

We do not place Grit Bins in rural locations, however at areas where there is a need (steep gradients), we have placed piles of grit (Grit Piles) on the road verges to assist with gritting of the public road network.

Additional information can be be found on our Winter Maintenance FAQ page

The location of Road Maintenance Grit Bins can be viewed in the map below, or alternatively, you also can view a list of our grit bins in Appendix G of the Winter Service Operational Plan

If you cannot find your grit bin on the map, this is likely because the Grit Bin your are trying to locate is not the responsibility of Roads Maintenance. You should therefore contact the responsible :- 

  • council service area directly (e.g. education within schools, lands & parks within parks/cemeteries, housing within council housing areas, estates within industrial estates etc)
  • housing association
  • housing estate developer/factor - (Roads Maintenance only become responsible once the roads are adopted on to the List of Public Roads, and even then not all roads within an estate will be adopted, and remain the responsibility of the factor or residents - your developer/factor should be able to advise you of this)
  • business
