What's McDonald's policy on litter?

July 12, 2018

We take great pride in our local environment and that's why we've been working hard for more than 30 years to try and reduce the amount of litter on our streets. We were the first restaurant company to introduce litter patrols in the UK - employees going out every day to collect litter that's been dropped in the area around our restaurants. Our patrollers pick up all rubbish, not just McDonald's packaging.

McDonald's is an active supporter of national Tidy groups, such as Keep Britain Tidy, Keep Scotland Beautiful, Keep Wales Tidy and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, and works closely with them on anti-litter campaigns. Since 2011 we have organised over 2,600 litter events, engaging 78,000 colleagues and community members in litter prevention.
