McDonald’s in Ballymena is calling on local people to join the ‘Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful Big Spring Clean’ taking place throughout April.
McDonald’s is delighted to be participating in the Big Spring Clean for the fifth consecutive and as part of this year’s effort McDonald’s in Ballymena would like to unite with members of its community in a clean-up operation to rid the streets of unsightly litter.
If there is an area which you think could would benefit from a spruce up please email suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, April 9.
James Nevitt from McDonald’s said: “The Big Spring Clean Campaign is an effective way of making a positive difference to neighbourhoods and in previous years it has been inspiring to see members of the community join forces to take action on litter that damages our environment. At McDonald’s we believe it is important for everyone to help protect and preserve the environment for future generations and we’re committed to finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in our restaurants and across our business.”
Dr Ian Humphreys, CEO of Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, said: “We believe that the BIG Spring Clean is an effective way of making a positive difference to various localities across Northern Ireland and showing that we live here and we love here.”
As well as the larger-scale Big Spring Clean events, staff at every McDonald’s restaurant also patrol the streets around each store at least three times a day to collect all litter that has been discarded, regardless of its origin.
