You may want fries with that – but put the rubbish in the bin.

That’s the message as McDonalds stores across the country prepare to once again participate in Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday, March 4.

In their 28th year of support, McDonalds have helped remove 3,743 ute loads of rubbish from 6138 clean up locations. 

McDonald's licensee Alex Lee – who has stores at  Wetherill Park, Fairfield, St Clair, St Marys South, Prairiewood, Neeta City and Minchinbury – said Clean up Australia Day is one of the “great initiatives” they continue to be active in yearly.

“I believe in building a better environment for our present and future generations in our local community,” he said.

“I am very proud of the role my team plays in the ongoing commitment to actively support and participate in these community engagements."

McDonalds crew and management as well as volunteers will spend time around the perimeter of stores to help clean up the community in the morning.

Fairfield has several sites registered for Clean Up Australia Day. The Schools/Youth Clean Up Day is on Friday, March 2.
