New litter bins in laybys on A26 and A27

Lewes District Council has installed 13 new litter bins in laybys on the A26 and A27 as part of its ongoing commitment to encourage people to dispose of their litter responsibly.

Scot Reid, Head of Customer Services at Lewes District Council said “We are continuing our efforts to tackle the issue of roadside litter and as we approach peak holiday time we urge people who stop at the laybys to use the bins provided. There is now no excuse for people who stop to leave litter strewn on the verges.” 

The Council has and will continue to issue fixed penalty notices to companies or individuals who allow loose rubbish to drop from their vehicles.

Earlier in the year Lewes District Council and Highways England contractor Balfour Beatty undertook a 13- night programme of intensive litter clearance along the A26 and A27.
