Our nearest grit bin is empty, when will it be restocked?

Question:
Our nearest grit bin is empty, when will it be restocked?
Answer:

All bins / piles provided by the county council will be fully stocked at the start of winter; and the majority of these grit bins / salt piles will be replenished as part of a routine programme throughout the season - depending on weather conditions and resource availability.

It is not possible to restock the bins on demand.

The bins at a number of lower-risk sites will only be filled at the beginning of the season. However, when using salt to treat the road, only small amounts are required and if spread sparingly and only during prolonged periods of adverse weather, the contents of the bin should last a typical winter.

A little amount goes a long way but its effectiveness is greatly increased on more frequently trafficked roads which aids the de-icing properties of the salt.
