Grit bins in the Ellon area are being misused with some being mistaken for litter bins.

Ellon & District councillor Gillian Owen said: “Having just had the first cold blast of the winter I checked my local grit bin in the Ellon Library car park.

“The first thing that struck me was the rubbish left in the bin - that is not its purpose, either take your rubbish home or find a litter bin.”

Cllr Owen added: “I thought it would be useful to let everyone know how to go about getting your local grit bin replenished, just call 03456 081205 or visit www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/report/infrastructure.

“If you want a grit bin get in contact and we shall see what can be done.”
