Staff at a Castlemilk fast food store donned their su­per­hero capes to help clear up the en­vi­ron­ment in their com­mu­nity.

Vol­un­teers from McDon­ald’s helped pick up 12 bags of lit­ter on green belt land be­tween Car­munnock and Castlemilk.

They were joined by other work­ers from stores in East Kil­bride and Mother­well to make a team of 40.

And all of them donned su­per­hero out­fits on the day.

Vol­un­teers from the Castlemilk store take part in reg­u­lar clean-ups around the lo­cal area.

The lat­est event co­in­cided with the Great Bri­tish Spring Clean, an ini­tia­tive to keep the coun­try tidy.

Castlemilk fran­chisee Kate Walker said: “The Great Bri­tish Spring Clean has in­spired peo­ple to vol­un­teer their time to get out­doors and pick up some of the lit­ter that sur­rounds and blights the ar­eas we live.

“We were de­lighted to par­tic­i­pate along­side so many will­ing vol­un­teers who all played their bit in help­ing make the lo­cal area a cleaner place to both live and visit.

“It was a lot of fun to dress up as su­per-he­roes, and it def­i­nitely made the lit­ter pick more ap­peal­ing to our younger vol­un­teers who also took part.”

Along­side large com­mu­nity lit­ter events like these, ev­ery McDon­ald’s res­tau­rant car­ries out three lit­ter pa­trols 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.
