Residents who may be at risk of slipping on their driveways and footpaths are being encouraged to take advantage of the Borough’s newest community initiative,
The Council will once again be offering residents the option to collect up to 50kg of free rock salt to assist in the clearance of footpaths and to make areas safer for their use. The first round of the scheme, in December, proved very popular with 750 bags of rock salt issued to Richmond residents,
The rock salt will be available for collection over two consecutive Saturdays in January between the 9am and 2pm on Saturday 13th January and again on Saturday 20th January.
As the depot (in Langhorn Drive, Twickenham – behind the Stoop) is a secure area, you will need to sign in at the gate reception so please ensure you have photo ID and proof of address with you when you arrive.
