Salt bins in Selling
Published: 23 December 2019
There has been lots of social media chat about winter weather and salt bins in Selling. So just to be clear about what we can all do to help ourselves, we hope you find this information helpful.
KCC Highways own, maintain and provide the salt bins around Selling. We reckon there are probably 13 of them (see map below).
Using the salt in the bins is a DIY thing. Unhelpfully, the bins are not always located exactly where you would expect them. Not everyone feels able to get salt from the bins and spread it on the road.
KCC need to be told about empty or damaged salt bins. You can do this through their website https://www.kent.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/what-we-look-after/winter-service/salt-bins
All salt bins have a unique number that will be used by the contractor for re-filling. So please look out for this and make a note of it as it will help accurately report empty bins.
