How to find us

Grit bins

Between them, Bridgend County Borough Council and local community councils provide approximately 400 grit bins at carefully chosen locations throughout the county borough.

These are usually found alongside residential roads and other minor routes, particularly where there may be junctions or steep hills, and are easy to spot as they are bright yellow.

Before the start of each winter season, the council refills the bins with a mix of salt and sharp sand. 

The bins are provided so that residents and motorists can use the grit when conditions deteriorate and make it easier to travel through local streets – please note that they are a community resource, and as such should not be used on privately owned land or property.
