Salt bins

Requesting a salt bin to use when there is ice and snow.

When snow or ice is forecast we salt the priority routes in West Sussex. We cannot salt every road in the county. Instead we assist local communities by working with parish, town, district and borough councils to provide salt bins.

If you live in an area where there isn't a salt bin you can request one. Contact your local town or parish council or district or borough council.

Salt bins are:

  • to be used by the community to treat public roads, pavements and other community areas
  • not to be used for use on private roads, driveways or land
  • refilled once by us before the start of winter
  • sometimes locked and will only be unlocked during severe weather by trained volunteers.

Parish and town councils also work with local farmers or contractors who can assist with snow clearance when needed. If you are a farmer or local contractor and would like to offer your support contact your local council.
