  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about litter.

    We regard litter as a significant issue, and we share your concern about the amount of rubbish discarded on our roads.

    We have a wide network across the south of England and therefore with a limited budget are required to concentrate our efforts on prioritising areas with the heaviest amount of litter in accordance with the Defra Code of Practice system (Grades A to D).

    We carry out regular litter inspections along our network, and our team will raise jobs to instruct our maintenance partners to litter pick sections of our network that are identified as a priority first.

    Although other areas will experience levels of litter that are unsightly, they will be tackled under our normal litter maintenance programme periodically twice a year if required. This may cause litter to be left for longer periods than we’d like.

    I hope you can understand that clearing rubbish is very costly and is an ongoing challenge across our network.

    We've passed your report to our local team inspector who will review if this location requires any remedial action.

    Should action be required, we'll usually combine our reactive litter picks with other maintenance work which can result in what appears to be a delayed response.

    Kind regards

    National Highways
