McDonald’s workers have swapped their burger-flippers for litter-pickers in a bid to encourage people to love where they live.
Staff from the Aplsey, Jarman Park and nearby Bourne End fast food chains all grabbed their rubbish bags for the day-long community event, based at the London Road outlet, yesterday.
More than 50 bags of litter were collected during the day.
Dacorum borough councillors for the Apsley and Corner Hall ward Brian Ayling, Michael Clark and Colin Peter took part, along with two police community support officers from the town.
A team from restaurant suppliers Martin Brower and Howard Gray, head of environment for McDonald’s UK, also joined in.
McDonald’s franchisee Alan Butchers said: “We place great importance in our social responsibility and value being a good neighbour within the community in which our business operates.
“I am therefore delighted that the day was such a great success with over 50 bags of litter being collected on our walk from Apsley into the town.
“McDonald’s holds over 400 ‘Love Where You Live’ events such as this every year, so it is important that we continue this great work locally.
“We will continue with our daily litter patrols around our restaurant.”
