"There's some vehicles that are obviously parked or abandoned that's difficult for the gritters to get through" says Nigel Wheeler, from Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.
"We've got the bins which are self help salt but it's more like 'help yourself' so that's been a problem".

Brass monkeys weather: Nakima combats the cold
Those of us struggling to keep warm during the recent snowy spell might find ourselves turning to cosy blankets and hot cups of tea - and we're not alone.
These chimps, who would usually be basking in the heat of the rainforests in the wild, are adopting the same measures as us to combat the cold.
But staff at the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary in Swansea say in reality the chimps are coping just fine - and joked that one or two like Nakima, pictured above, are prone to 'milking it'.
Kevin Ashford braved the 'brass monkeys' weather to meet the primates.

Rescued Snowdonia campers 'lacked experience'
A group of young campers who had to be rescued from Snowdonia last night in sub-zero conditions 'lacked the knowledge and experience' for their adventure, rescuers said today.
The three, from Shrewsbury, had gone for a walk on the north ridge and didn't have torches with them when darkness fell.
They became stuck near the Cannon Rock, 1,000ft high on Tryfan, before being led to safety by members of Ogwen mountain rescue team, who were on the mountain for more than six hours.
[They were] were very pleased to see us, cold but unharmed. They were young people seeking adventure and went up the mountain with the best intentions - but lacked knowledge and experience.
– Chris Lloyd, Ogwen rescue team
