Spillages on roads and pavements

Reporting a spillage

You should report a spillage or obstruction that could cause a danger to anyone using a public road or pavement.

We will clear spillages and obstructions from public roads for which we have responsibility.

You should contact National Highways (formerly 'Highways England') for matters concerning:

  • A13 – from M25 junction 30 to the Tilbury slip road and to the A1089

Commercial waste

Commercial waste must be packed in containers that prevent it falling out or blowing away. We will deal with any report of commercial waste spillage where due care has not been taken.
