STOMPer Chestnut spotted these litter which were apparently from a nearby McDonald's outlet at West Coast Park. The STOMPer feels that McDonald's should let its staff pick up after their customers in the park to prevent this from happening again.
The STOMPer said:
"These photos were taken at West Coast Park.
"As McDonald's has set up a 24-hour outlet right next to the park, many people who spend their evenings or early mornings there would order take-aways from there to eat in the park.
"From the photos, it is obvious that these McDonald's patrons only care about enjoying their time in the park.
"They do not give a hoot about clearing their mess when they leave.
"In my opinion, the person who enables and encourages such uncivilized behaviour is Uncle Ronald McDonald!
"Hence, the owners of this McDonald's outlet should bear their share of social responsibility in keeping the park clean and green.
"I suggest that McDonald's can arrange for its staff to make routine rounds in the park to pick up after their customers, just like how they do within the restaurant."

I don't see why the staff of McDonald's have to be responsible for cleaning up after others outside of their premises. After all, I personally think that more of the blame lies on those who are too lazy, irresponsible, and stupid to use a bin in the first place.
