McDonald's manager Sam Johnson said: "McDonald's stay committed to carrying out litter patrols regularly, collecting both McDonalds packaging and other litter.

"We are lucky to have so many employees who care greatly about our community and are always keen to get involved with larger scale litter picks.

"The reduction in litter over the areas we've covered is great to see - 43 bags full off of the streets!

"We are grateful to the local council for suggesting the areas we targeted and arranging to collect the picked litter."
