Cat Litter Tops The List Of Materials Needed By Drivers In The Winter Months

The winter months can be difficult for drivers who want to stay on the road when the harshest conditions are seen across our region. When freezing conditions arrive we at Toyota of Brookhaven) have often used salt to melt snow and ice around our vehicles but are now looking to lower our impact on the environment by using cat litter for this important task.

If looking to remove snow and ice from roads or driveways in Brookhaven the use of salt remains the top choice but when traction is difficult to find in snow and ice the use of cat litter is a choice we now recommend. Cat litter absorbs moisture and adds grip to a roadway without damaging the vehicle or the landscape. Salt has a damaging effect when it moves from the road to grassy areas on the sidewalk and can damage food sources needed by local animals.

Ask our staff the reasons why switching to cat litter in the winter is a good idea!
