Last week, Stephen participated in a local litter pick organised by McDonalds in East Ham. The initiative formed part of the company’s ‘Keep up the Clean Up’ campaign.
In addition to this venture, McDonalds Business Manager - Dinesh Sohunjay Gujadhur -oversees daily litter patrols within a 100 metre radius of the branch on High Street North. The fast food restaurant actively encourages its customers to dispose of packaging responsibly, but for those who do not, the patrols aim to ease the impact of litter on the local community.
Speaking after the event, Stephen said: ‘I am happy to support this initiative by McDonalds to clean up our local community and I applaud the company for taking its responsibility towards the local environment seriously. Littering and fly tipping have been a persistent problem in the East Ham area and I encourage anyone who sees it happening to report it to the Council using the Love Newham app’.
