Report gritting (winter service)

Request a refill, repair or new grit bin

We only provide grit bins at locations on minor roads that are not on the priority road network.

We fill grit bins before the start of winter and aim to refill them as often as we can. Requests for refills will only be considered after we have gritted our priority and secondary routes.

To request a refill, repair or new grit bin you will need to provide:

  • the location of the grit bin
  • a description
  • your email address
  • up to 5 photographs - max 10mb limit (optional)

Requests for new grit bins are assessed against set criteria.


We are not able to consider additional requests for gritting and we are open about the fact we cannot grit every road in Lancashire. We have identified our priority and secondary routes, which help to keep the county moving.
