    I was on a litter pick yesterday....lots of bottles, cans, and, yes; McDonalds litter. I think McDonalds should do their bit and print vehicle reg on wrappings etc at the drive through....pretty simple idea and pretty simple to implement. Rupert

    Prolly risk averse, imagine the payout for an offender getting clipped?

    The countryside is no better, it really grinds my gears to see the amount of bail wrap, orange mineral tubs, dead sheep, rolls of fencing wire and rusting machinery the litter the farms in the area I live, it's "supposed" an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you would not dare put the wrong kind of front door or Windows in your house but lazy arsed farmers can treat the environment as thier tip is a national disgrace. They claim to be "custodians of the countryside" and sit and wait for the next income support cheque to pop through the door, make my blood boil.

    It is bad over here, just returned from a trip to Holland and Germany and the contrast when we got off the ferry at this end was noticeable. They just don't seem to have the cultural problem we seem to have, either that or they're much better at keeping them clean.
    I also notice how much road kill we have here compared and I find this just as unpleasant. On the same trip I saw one dead mammal (identity Unknown) in a 1500mile drive. I'd seen more than 50 dead pheasants, foxes, badgers etc within ten miles of leaving harwich....
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Counted the number of dew ponds/clay borrow pits full of cr*p lately?

    That's a great idea in principle, to require of all drive-throughs. Just trying to think what the downsides might be.

    Cultural problem sounds closer to the mark, I remember on a school trip to Austria, we were advised to "Not litter in any way shape or form", I personally witnessed an arrest of a tourist for littering the following day.

    Good idea, not so sure about simple to implement (sounds like it might involve expensive tech if done automatically), still a good idea though.

    well done on the litter pick, practical action is likely to be the most effective way to get Britain tidy.
