Staggering amount of litter

I'll have to keep reporting this until action is taken unfortunately, as every day this is getting worse. The amount of litter along the A1 from Stamford to Peterborough is beyond belief. I drive this route every day, and cannot believe it is being left in this state. Heavy amounts of rubbish lines the verges/ laybys and central reservation along every metre travelled. I attempted to clean an area along the pedestrian footpath adjacent to the A1 near Wittering recently and quickly filled 3 large bags within around 200m.

This therefore needs a mass clearance. You need to be working in collaboration with Highways England to arrange lane closures and heavy litter picking along this stretch. Can action please be taken as a priority. Lockdown is the perfect opportunity to get this cleared, as traffic is alot lighter than usual. Thank you.
