ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – The City of Rochester is providing residents an opportunity to pickup free sand and salt ahead of Friday’s snowstorm.

The mixture is typically used to coat walkways and driveways at homes or businesses to make surfaces less slippery in winter weather.

Residents can fill up a maximum of a five-gallon bucket at these locations:

-Northbrook Shopping Center behind the Fiesta Café in Northeast Rochester

-Next to the YMCA downtown at the end of 1st Avenue Southwest

Officials ask residents to bring their own buckets or bags and shovels.

The sand/salt piles will be stocked in advance ahead of the first substantial snow/ice event.
