I CYCLE along the road leading to McDonald's at Hankridge Farm most mornings.

The amount of litter along the road is staggering.

McDonald's carry out out a litter pick and do their best to address the problem but the problem is not of McDonald's making, but the thoughtless people who park up during the evening to eat their food and then just toss their rubbish out of their cars.

The local council has carried out a lot of work in the area to make a more pleasant environment, only for it to be trashed by some thoughtless individuals.

The only answer I can suggest is some hefty fines in the evenings for littering.
