Notts County Council tells residents to buy their own salt and grit for winter
NOTTS County Council is encouraging householders to be prepared for winter by buying their own bags of salt and grit.
The authority can store a total of 22,000 tonnes of salt, with around 18,000 tonnes currently in stock, and a fleet of 23 front-line gritters ready to spread the grit.
But the council also wants to make sure people are ready for a cold snap. Richard Jackson, chairman of the transport and highways committee, said: "Bags of salt and grit are available at DIY stores, garden centres and builders' merchants.
"People can help themselves and others keep on the move this winter simply by preparing in advance."
