Help yourself to grit

You can find your nearest grit bin using the online map:

You can also download view a list of grit bin locations:

There are 319 grit bins throughout East Renfrewshire. The salt inside is there for you to use to make the road or footway safer but you need to have your own container and shovel. You may also pick up small quantities of salt from our depot at Carnwadric Road, Thornliebank if you bring your own container and shovel. This means that you can help your community, which is particularly important during prolonged cold spells when the Council's Winter Service needs to focus on keeping main roads open across the area.

For self serve grit other than grit bins go to:

East Renfrewshire Council Depot
190 Carnwadric Road
Thornliebank
G46 8HR
