Grit only for public paths

Have your say

A plea has been issued to residents in Midlothian not to use grit in council bins to treat private driveways and footpaths.

Commercial operations spokeswoman for Midlothian Council said: “We’ve had reports people are using the grit to clear their own driveways, which is not appropriate.”

The council added not all streets meet the criteria for a grit bin.
