Get your free grit ready for an icy winter

Logo LBRUT Small

Richmond residents are once again being offered free bags of grit and rock salt as part of the Council’s annual winter initiative to tackle snow and ice.

In continuation of last year’s very positive response to the issuing of free rock salt, the Council is again encouraging residents to take advantage of the Borough’s newest community initiative.

Last year, the Council successfully issued 1150 bags of rock salt to Richmond residents and, as a result, the Council will again be offering residents the option to collect up to 50kg of rock salt from the Council’s Depot in Langhorn Drive, Twickenham – behind the Stoop.

The rock salt will be available for collection from Monday 26th November until Friday 30th November between the hours of 9am and 3pm.

As the depot 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.

In addition, the Council’s winter gritting service which runs from October to April will continue to keep main roads clear of snow and ice and ensure entrances to important public buildings remain accessible.
