Dear Mr Silverman

……………….

UK Highways act in accordance with the relevant Code of Practice for Litter and Refuse and clear litter from the M40 when the need arises. UK Highways identify the need to clear litter through routine inspections, acting on notifications from the Highways Agency’s Traffic Officer Service or members of the public.

We monitor performance exceptionally by following through notifications from our stakeholders.  As the Code of Practice for Litter and Refuse does not define the frequency with which litter should be cleared, there are no schedules available.  The Highways Agency has a daily presence on the network via our Traffic Officer Service who will notify UK Highways of increasing volumes of litter.

I attach an extract from our Contract with UK Highways which states that the Secretary of State has discharged its duties under the EPA to the DBFO Company, UK Highways.

……………………..

Regards

Aran Nugent, Department’s Representative
