A McDonald’s litter picker in action at Tandem

After concerns expressed by Yetton Together about the amount of ‘take away’ debris scattered around the Tandem Industrial Estate, McDonalds have pledged to take part in a clean up.
A member of YT said that many drive thru customers of the restaurant at Waterloo park on the estate to consume their food. Unfortunately they then discard the remnants – a particular hot spot is the area at the start of the footpath to Kirkvale and Kirkheaton Parish Church.
Mc Donald’s spokesperson, Sarah Manning said ‘we are keen to support any initiative to clean up the environment. In the short term we are increasing our litter patrols to include the estate. We will then be liaising with Kirklees Council and YT for a more long term solution’
