    National Highways, as the government owned company is responsible for the Strategic Road Network in England. Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, we’re responsible for collecting litter on England’s motorways and a small number of trunk roads. Local authorities are responsible for collecting litter on most all-purpose trunk roads.

    Litter removal on the A38 is the responsibility of the local authority. You would need to bring your concerns to their attention.
