McDonald’s sign up to the ‘Cramlington Code’
November 19, 2019
As part of Cramlington Town Council’s Clean Cramlington campaign, food outlets in the town are being invited to sign the ‘Cramlington Code’.
This is a scheme where businesses are asked to sign a pledge confirming that they will do their utmost to maintain a litter-free environment around their site.
To sign up to the Cramlington Code businesses will outline their litter management action plan and the council will in return offer them advice on best practice.
The first business to sign up to the code is McDonald’s, who is already recognised nationally for the responsibility it takes in maintaining litter-free sites.
Kim Smith, Business Manager of McDonalds in Cramlington said “We are delighted to be the first business to sign the Cramlington Code and by doing so confirm that we recognise the benefits of having a clean and tidy premises in the local community.
We will also be working with Cramlington Town Council in the future to run children’s competitions that reflect the environmental aims of both the Cramlington Code and McDonalds.”
The Town Council will be approaching all food outlets in the town and asking them to sign the Cramlington Code, demonstrating their willingness to be responsible for the management of litter around their business.
