Sheffield Grit Bins
Sheffield Grit Bins is an import of Sheffield City Council's dataset of public grit bins.
Currently, OSM has limited mapping of grit bins in the area, so the main aim of importing this dataset is to improve mapping of the area. The import is being done by CjMalone.
Import will be done in mid April 2022. Done on 2022-06-05 in changeset 121995023

Data Merge Workflow
As of 2022-03-20 there are only 38 grit bins, of which I added at least 10 in the last week. I will manually conflate them using a best guess on which has the more accurate location.
The location accuracy isn't perfect, sometimes a bin may be on wrong side of the road. Considering the current state of alignment issues in Sheffield I don't see this as a show stopper.
