FAST food chains have teamed up with Doncaster Council to try to ease the borough’s litter problem.

New signs are being installed at drive-through outlets for both KFC and McDonald’s to remind people of the penalties for not putting their rubbish in a bin.

The restaurants have also agreed to carry out regular litter picks at rubbish hotspots, support local community groups in carrying out litter picks, display signs advertising a ‘zero tolerance’ stance on littering, and allow council officers to take enforcement action against anyone seen littering on their sites.

Coun Cynthia Ransome, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, regulatory and customer services, said: “Environmental crime of any form will not be tolerated in Doncaster and we will continue to hold those who drop litter to account.”

Mark Clapham, franchisee of three McDonald’s in Doncaster, said working together would have a positive impact on the community.
