I litter pick my local area of Hog Lane and Downs Northfleet Istead Kent. The task is continuous due to the semi-rural roads subject to frequent flytipping and general littering from the local weekend visitors who use the lane as a domestic refuse bin.
I have been lobbying our Government, Kent County Council and Highways England to provide a proper litter picking regime for our national strategy motorway and A road network. At the moment, the system is broken and all concerned are in denial about the problem and refuse to acknowledge change. There is a really good website owned and managed by Peter Silverman who has dedicated his time to challenge Government and Highways England but he needs all our support. This can be achieved simply by leaving any comments about our littered motorways and A roads or just any ideas you may have for change. His website is growing in support and any comments you make will be sent each month to the ministers and Highways England senior management. Please go onto his website and support him with this challenging problem. It is only us, the taxpayers that will make Government listen in the end.
