Superhero volunteers happy to spring clean
McDonald’s team bag green belt litter
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.
