Keep Britain Tidy are launching a campaign to clean up litter across the UK over the weekend of 3-5 March.
Brixton’s local McDonalds is supporting the clean up and a crew of staff will be volunteering on the day.
Franchisee Terry Eagle is asking the Brixton community to help identify local ‘grot spots’ in need of a clean up and invites local community groups to roll their sleeves up and join in. Readers can email suggestions for areas in need of a spring clean or sign up to here.
Terry Eagle said: “To win the war on litter everyone needs to work together, with businesses having an important part to play. McDonald’s is committed to working with local communities to tackle litter having done so for over 30 years since introducing ‘litter patrols’ to its UK business in 1982, and we are really pleased to be supporting the Great British Spring Clean. Our staff are eager to be involved and it’s great that we can work with local people to choose somewhere that really needs it!”
McDonalds says it will supply the bin bags and litter pickers and invites local community groups to roll their sleeves up.
Now in its seventh year, Keep Britain Tidy wants to encourage half a million people to take part.
Brixton McDonalds is a long-standing partner of Keep Britain Tidy. Staff from Streatham and Brixton previously teamed up with locals and councilors to collect 20 bags of rubbish on Brixton Hill as part of the Love Where You Live campaign.
