Local councillors have produced an updated map of the grit bins around Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward.
The map that is available on the council website does not include grit bins managed by the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, those on the Revival estate that have been ‘adopted’ by the ward or those that have recently been installed following requests from residents.
If residents spot any grit bins that need re-filling, please let us know by e-mailing DandW@yorklibdems.org.uk

The recent wintry weather has delayed the completion of the road resurfacing works on Middlethorpe Grove.
Although the resurfacing work was completed successfully before the bad spell of weather came in, the joint cutting, road marking and verge seeding did not take place due to the snow. The joint cutting was further delayed by the snow on Thursday 8 March. It is hoped that this work will now take place, along with the road marking, during the week commencing 12 March. The reinstatement of all disturbed verges will occur during the week commencing 19 March.
Funding from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committee continues to make a difference to our area.
On the Revival estate, off Tadcaster Road, there are four grit bins which were installed when the estate was first built. Local Lib Dem councillors have been trying to find out who is responsible for them, but it seems no-one is!
We have therefore stepped in and have agreed that the Ward Committee will ‘adopt’ these grit bins. They have all now been re-filled (paid for from the ward budget) and two have been relocated to ensure a more even distribution across the estate.
Further up Tadcaster Road, Brunswick Organic Nursery has delivered two wheelchair-accessible raised beds to Dringhouses library. The beds have been funded from the ward budget, and are a further addition to the wonderful revamped patio area at the side and rear of the library.
This will allow you to tick a box next to “primary” and” secondary” gritting routes. The primary gritting routes include most bus routes and are salted as a precaution when weather forecasts predict icy conditions.
You can find out whether the gritters are working by “following” them on twitter @yorkgritter
Just in time for the current cold snap, we are pleased to report that the grit bin on Hillcrest Gardens has been reinstalled, two years after the previous Labour council administration ordered its removal.
This has been funded by the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Budget, which has been substantially increased by the current council administration.
We’d like to hear from residents if there are other locations where grit bins could be installed.
It shows the location of many local services including individual street lighting columns (with their I/D number and type) plus litter bins and poop scoop bins. It also shows which roads and footpaths have been adopted for maintenance purposes.
At this time of year the map can be used to locate salt bins while also displaying the route that the gritting lorries follow.
