Lay-bys on a1 south from tuxford to Grantham

My husband and I have driven south from Yorkshire. Along this reported stretch of dual carriageway, It became apparent that almost every bin in the lay-bys From tuxford to Grantham were visibly overflowing with litter. Yes it is a bank holiday Sunday but this is likely to get worse tomoro with the additional bank holiday and had term holiday. With clearing this a legal responsibility it would be great for this to be addressed before it blows into the hedges, further litter left at these areas and therefore becomes environmentally impactive and a further eyesore.

It appears the lay-bys without the bins are in fact clearer than those with the bins available.
