  • Thank you for your email of 10 August 2023 about litter on the A616. We appreciate the time you’ve taken to advise us of your concerns.

    The A616 at this location is an all-purpose trunk road. Usually, the responsibility for litter picking on these roads is the responsibility of the local authority. Under the Environmental Protection Act, we’re only responsible for litter clearance on roads classed as “special” roads, such as motorways or those where specific legislation transfers cleansing duties to us. This means that litter picking duties at this location sits with Sheffield City Council via pollution-nuisance/ litter-bins-flytipping. They manage litter issues, fly-tipping and sweeping on this stretch of the A616.
