Biblical amount of litter m621 east and westbound to m62 junction.

Reported via desktop in the Main Carriageway (NH) category anonymously at 15:11, Friday 12 January 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5430919.

Massive amount of litter on slip roads and embankments east and west carriageways from jct 1 to m62 jct. I’ve reported this before(nothing done)! It’s an embarrassment and eyesore on a major route into Leeds . Come on -tidy it up. We at litter free leeds are aching to help out if you aren’t interested.

  • Absolutely appalling amount of litter along the M621 from Biirstall to Leeds. Makes you ashamed of your country.

  • Thank you for your email of 12 January 2024 about litter on the embankments and central reservations on the M62 and M621. We understand your concerns and appreciate you taking the time to contact us about the issue.

    Litter is a serious and widespread problem and our strategy for dealing with it can be found via our-work/ environment/ litter-on-motorways-and-major-a-roads/ .

    We typically clear this location 6 times per year. We've checked and can confirm there are overnight closures planned in this area anti-clockwise between M621 J4 to M62 J27 for three nights, 29 to 31 January and clockwise closures between M62 J27 and M621 J1 for three nights, 1 to 3 February. Work will take place to sweep, pick litter and clear/maintain drainage assets on the west-facing slip roads at M621 and the mainline from there to the M62 at Gildersome during these closures.

    Thank you again for contacting us. If there is anything we can help you with, please email or telephone our Contact Centre. They’re available 24 hours a day by phone: 0300 123 5000 or by email Alternatively, please visit the National Highways website at
