WEST Dunbartonshire Council have updated their list of grit bins placed around the area for residents to use.

Large capacity community grit bins are placed at strategic areas, with the council encouraging self help at locations where minor roads and lesser important routes have a lower priority response for mechanical gritters.

There are also more than a hundred smaller 'standard grit bins' located on pavements across the area.
