Salt Containers

Salt containers are provided for residents to use on Council maintained roads and pavements.

 

Salt is not for private or commercial business use; salt is available from many retail outlets for this purpose. When spread it will help prevent formation of ice and soften snow prior to its removal. We will routinely refill salt containers twice during the winter period and during adverse weather as often as is practicable.

 

Be sure not to put yourself at risk when spreading the salt or removing snow as it can be physically demanding. We recommend you seek assistance from neighbours where possible, as the Council will not be liable for any injuries.

An assessment will be carried out to determine eligibility of new requests.

Please Note: If your road is currently not adopted - that is maintained by the Council - or is on private land, then we have no maintenance responsibility for it and as such it cannot place a salt container on site.
