The Tameside Winter Weather Pledge

Working together we can beat the big chill

Follow us on Twitter for winter weather updates Link to External Website

We will...

  • Grit all the main routes and do all we can to keep the priority roads open
  • Collect your refuse when it is safe to do so
  • Keep our website, Facebook and Twitter site up to date with all the information you need
  • Post all the important news as soon as it happens
  • Do all we can to support schools to remain open

You can help by...

  • Clearing the snow on the pavements outside your house (do not use hot water to clear – please just shovel to the side)
  • Using grit from the grit bins to keep side roads open, but please do not use on private drives
  • Buying your own supply of grit from a local business for your own use
  • Being a good neighbour - keep an eye on old and vulnerable neighbours to make sure they safe and warm, help clear their paths and driveways and let us know if you are concerned about their health or safety
