Road Salt Grit Bin Holcot Close Wellingborough opp.44

Reported via desktop in the Grit Bin - damaged/replacement category by Keith Graham Webb at 10:22, Wed 11 October 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 5085012.

This grit bin has a quantity of salt inside which has solidified and cannot be extracted plus it has a quantity of water inside. It will be of no help to just “top it up” as it will be soon used and left with a solid lump of Road grit. Have tried to contact the council about this on numerous occasions, but to no avail. Thought it would be a good idea to get this resolved before any bad weather hits us. Many thanks, .
