I want to complain about this content:

  • We live near McDonalds Tuckswood, and we recently spent a half day with their staff, doing a litter pick in the area with our local Cubs and Beavers. I was amazed to find they do two litter picks a day, and they don't JUST pick their own rubbish. On the day we were with them we cleared several local roads, a woodland area and part of Lakenham Way. They collected a huge number of bags of rubbish, and I reckon more than half of it was NOT their packaging. There were a lot of drink cans, some empty or half full bottles of alcohol, discarded clothing and shoes, general household waste. Makes me wonder who left it there, and why!! We learned a lot about the store policy on litter and it was a pleasure to spend time with the friendly, helpful and responsible staff. It's not McDonalds fault that people are too lazy or irresponsible to clear up after themselves, and it's not their responsiblity to clear up after car drivers who dump stuff out of their windows. Surely that's a police matter if they happen to see them do it? I work close to the city centre and the amount of rubbish from ALL the fast food outlets which is on the pavements each morning is disgraceful. The car park I use is regularly littered with pizza boxes and polystyrene packaging, often with food still in them, but I have never seen anyone from any of those places out there with a bin bag!!! Thats all cleared by the City Council workmen..... So credit where it's due, at least Mr Foley is making the effort.
