I've found the Grit bin amenity tag and would like to know how I would go about creating a UK map with all mapped grit bins.

The really simple way would be to use Overpass-turbo, but if there are lots and lots of grit bins mapped that may be too much data. At present we have around 2250 grit bins mapped in Great Britain, so this is not currently a problem, so I've created a query.

There are techniques for pulling data out with overpass (e.g., as GeoJSON) and showing them on a map using tools like leaflet or OpenLayers.

You could also do something similar as explained in this blog http://www.mappa-mercia.org/2014/09/creating-an-always-up-to-date-map.html , combining Overpass and umap. This might be easier if you do not want to program in JavaScript.
