Although most of us may be hoping for a white Christmas, snow and ice can be a hazard when you're out and about. Leeds City Council send out gritting lorries to grit the primary routes around the city but that doesn't cover pavements. That is where grit bins come in useful. The location of every grit bin in Leeds is available as a dataset on Data Mill North. If you don't have one near you, you can request a new grit bin. If your grit bin is empty, request a refill.
