McDonald’s Volunteers Join Forces with Keep Britain Tidy to Tackle Litter in Telford

McDonald’s Volunteers Join Forces with Keep Britain Tidy to Tackle Litter in Telford

| by Editor | Posted in Telford News

Volunteers from the McDonald’s restaurant at Telford Forge Retail Park have joined forces with Telford and Wrekin Council to clean up the grounds of Horsehay Village Hall and the surrounding area.

The litter party was made up of ten volunteers, including the Councillor and McDonald’s crew members, with the tidy team coming together to spruce up the grounds and paint the front gates of the hall.

The team intend to meet regularly in order to continue their efforts to clean up the local community.

The second meeting will be to tidy the grounds of the Arleston Centre on the 16th May, where the McDonald’s crew members will be joined by Cllr Angela McClements. The group plan to improve the community garden for local residents.

Business Manager at the restaurant, Dean Haynes said: “It was great to see everyone come together to complete this clean-up and I’d like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work. As a business, we understand the important role we play in making the area a better place. When local businesses and community members work together we are able to achieve so much more and this event is a perfect example of this.”

This event is just one of a number of McDonald’s clean-ups which have taken place across the UK as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s anti-littering campaign, ‘Love Where You Live’. The campaign and partnership is now in the sixth year and continues to encourage local communities to take action and work together to tackle litter in their area.

Aside from larger litter events such as these, McDonald’s restaurants patrol the streets at least three times a day to collect all litter that has been discarded, regardless of its origin. Crew members across the UK cover a total of 3,000 miles each week on litter patrols, which equates to 150,000 miles a year and the distance of five marathons each year per store.

In addition to the annual Keep Britain Tidy litter events and daily patrols, many restaurants have now begun to get involved in events such as painting walls and replanting trees and flowers that improve local community areas.
