  • Thank you for contacting us about litter in this location.

    This location stretches across two areas of our network.

    I can confirm that litter is picked up and collected on a cyclic basis, this being between four and six times annually between April and March. Four times per year is the minimum number of times an area, as defined - verges, non-paved central reservations and amenity grass areas, including gate way features, village verges and special landscape features – will be subject to litter collection. In certain areas, known as “litter Hotspots” where local intelligence informs us that litter is more likely to be dropped, we undertake litter picks six times per year.

    The majority of the M1, from J47 Garthforth to J30 Barlborough (Area12 extent) is litter picked four times per year as a minimum, as well as V-Channel sweeping (Concrete Central Reserve) which is undertaken twice annually, at separate intervals to the defined litter pick.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
