  • I’ve spoken to our Route Inspector to confirm that we monitor our network for litter on our weekly safety inspections. Litter is then graded and given a timescale for clearance.

    Grade A: No litter or refuse Grade B: Predominately free of litter and refuse apart from some small items Grade C: Widespread distribution of litter and/or refuse with minor accumulations (Cleared within 28 days) Grade D: Heavily affected by litter and/or refuse with significant accumulations (Cleared within 7 days)

    The grades are set out by the DEFRA (Department for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs) and the Environmental Protection Act. I’ve attached our litter strategy should you wish to read further about this. It also shows roads for which litter is our responsibility.


    Kind regards Highways England
