  • Response Thank you for your email to Highways England dated 05/02/2021 08:42 regarding Litter. litter collection on a road maintained by a Local Authority. Highways England is responsible for the maintenance and stewardship of motorways and trunk roads in England however the responsibility for litter collection on trunk roads falls with the local authority. Under the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990: Code of Practice on Litter and Refuse, responsibility for keeping all-purpose trunk roads (APTR) free from litter falls to the local district and borough councils. There are a few lengths of trunk road on which Highways England is responsible for litter collection and these are detailed in the attached extract from the Network Maintenance Manual. The link below also takes you to a page on our web site that details the A - roads for which we retain the litter clearance responsibility. https://www.gov.uk/ government/ publications/ responsibility-for-clearing-litter-from-motorways-and-roads Advised and closed.
