North Herts District Council is to spend thousands of pounds of council taxpayers money on a clear-up of rubbish on the district’s busiest roads.

A roadside clean up, which took place alongside the A602 Wymondley Bypass last weekend, resulted in 23 tons of rubbish being collected.

Further clear up work on the A505 Hitchin to Luton road is scheduled to start early next month. Most of the work involves removing the litter and debris which has been thrown from passing cars and includes items such as food packaging, plastic bottles and bags.

Sections of the road will need to be closed while the work is carried out. The total annual cost for the clean up of the major roads in the district is around £38,000 and also includes work to be carried out on the A505 Baldock to Royston Road.
