I have just joined the M6 J14 up to the A5 Cannock J12 following A Staffordshire Recycle Lorry, When joining the Motorway there is a sign saying please take your litter home, I just happened to join after this recycle lorry, I kept a distance because of all the plastic bags coming out of the container on the back, listening to Radio Stoke a few weeks ago saying its costing over a million pound to clean up and people are throwing rubbish out of cars, I can say I have never seen anyone throw rubbish out of the car on the motorway but the amount of rubbish that came out of this container Today I can see why it costs so much if this is occurring everyday.

Chris, I witnessed a similar scene a few months ago in Hampshire, took details of the vehicle, and reported it to the Environment Agency, after a long time trying to trace the correct people. They said they had “limited powers” to deal with the escape of waste from a vehicle on a public highway but nonetheless approached the operator, warned them and reminded them of their duty of care. HE deny they have powers to enforce (but we say they do have residual powers), the police will deal if they are given details and you are willing to make a statement.
