Helping to clean up the Taff Trail near Rhydyfelin
A team of staff from McDonalds at Nantgarw has joined forces with Rhondda Cynon Taf Council to tackle a litter problem in the area.
The McDonalds’ tidy team, who were joined by members of the Council’s Streetcare team, embarked on a litter-picking challenge along the Taff Trail near Rhydyfelin.
Donning high visibility jackets and armed with litter pickers, the teams collected over 20 bags of litter as they looked to encourage the community to take responsibility for keeping their neighbourhood litter-free and take pride in the local environment.
Cllr Ann Crimmings, Cabinet Member for Environment, Leisure and Sport, said: “The Council applauds the efforts of McDonalds staff as they join us in our ongoing campaign for a cleaner, greener environment.
“Unfortunately there are still a significant proportion of people who think it is acceptable to drop litter – when clearly it is not.
“Litter is everyone’s responsibility, and through initiatives such as this, together we can generate awareness of the issue and educate people on how to dispose of rubbish properly.”
The Taff Trail, which travels throughout Rhondda Cynon Taf, is a 55-mile way-marked route for walkers and cyclists – from Cardiff Bay to the Brecon Beacons National Park.
