Cold weather is on its way and it's important to be prepared. One way to do this is by ensuring that your grit bin is filled and ready to go.

A grit bin is a container that holds salt, sand, or other abrasives that can be spread on sidewalks, driveways, and roads to provide traction and prevent slips and falls during snowy or icy weather. Grit bins are typically located in public areas such as parks, sidewalks, and parking lots and are available for use by the public.

It's important to check your grit bin now and make sure it's filled with the appropriate materials. Salt is the most common abrasive used in grit bins, as it helps to melt ice and snow. Sand is also a good option, as it provides extra traction on slippery surfaces.

If you don't have a grit bin in your area, consider contacting your local government or community organization to request one. Many municipalities have programs in place to provide and maintain grit bins for public use.

In addition to having a filled grit bin ready to go, it's also a good idea to have a small supply of salt or sand on hand for your personal use. This can be useful for treating your own driveway and sidewalks, as well as any steps or walkways leading to your home.

As the weather gets colder, remember that safety should always be a top priority. By being prepared with a filled grit bin, you can help keep your community safe during the winter months.
