Following the disruption to borders last week, roadside waste was left behind affecting many of the key routes to Dover.
Nicky Potts, Highways England head of operational integration, said: “Since Boxing day and over the last few days, we have collected over 1,400 bags of waste along the M20 between junctions 8 and 9 as well as a large lorry load from between junctions 10a and 13.
“We have more litter clearance work planned over the next week which will include supporting our Dover District Council partners in cleaning up the A20 and A2.
“We thank residents in the affected areas along the motorway for their patience while this work is carried out.”
