HCC fills the salt/grit bins with a 50:50 mix of salt and grit which can be freely used by members of the community to de-ice pavements and smaller access roads.  It only takes a tablespoon of salt/grit to treat one square metre of road or pavement.  If your local bin is less than 3/4 full and needs refilling through the winter, please contact HCC via:-
