The mini grit bin is water tight and comes with salt and scoop

Forget hunting down the local council grit bin – now making the garden path safe is a whole lot easier. You can have your very own on hand in the shape of the 30 litre mini grit bin from Seltek Warehouse. Made from a tough, recycled black polyethylene it comes supplied with a 25 kg bag of road salt and a small, injection moulded, scoop. As well as being durable the bin is also fitted with a hinged lid, making it water tight and protecting contents from the weather. Two keys are supplied allowing it to double up as a storage box for garden tools or toys during the summer. And the moulded tread on the lid means you can even use it as a step stool. At 12in (30.5cm) high x 19in (47.5cm) wide x 15in (38.3cm) deep it won’t take up a huge amount of space either.
