Grit bin locations in Gatehouse

With winter upon us and slippery pavements once again a threat, the current locations of grit bins across the town can be checked on a useful interactive map on the D&G Council website.  They are there for the use of residents for example to put grit on the paths/pavements/roads outside their houses. 

If a bin needs to be refilled, please take a note of the number on the bin - they all have a number - and contact D&G Council on 030 33 33 3000 or e-mail them on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The online map can be zoomed in to street level to show precise location of bins and the bin identification.  The map itself zoomed out also shows the gritting arrangements for the region's roads and which roads are the priority routes for gritting.
