Find out when we clean main roads


We clear litter on the A3 between the Ripley turn-off (at the junction with the B2039) and Milford. The Department for transport (opens new window) clear litter north of the Ripley junction to the borough boundary.

Cleaning takes place on a scheduled basis. We cover the whole length of the A3 twice a year. The central reservation is cleaned as part of these planned closures. This operation takes place at night to minimise disruption to motorists.

The A3 is only cleaned with traffic management in place. Regular litter picking and bin emptying is scheduled for lay-bys.

Planned litter clearing dates

Future litter clearing dates will be added here when confirmed.
