In the past, people have asked me why it is that there is so little litter on the streets and cycle-paths in our photos and videos from Assen. They're not completely clear of litter, and they are swept which removes it every so often, but in general you see little litter because in comparison with some other places, relatively little is dropped. Cyclepaths have bins on them, into which most litter from teenagers gets thrown (some miss, of course, so you also see some next to these bins), and that helps a lot.

rest is on the ground.
Now I'd not want to make any accusations against a company known to be as litigious as McDonalds, so I'd better make it clear that of course I'm sure they're completely innocent of any wrong-doing. But when I looked for it and took photos of it, there did still seem to be an awful lot of rubbish from this fast food joint spread out over the whole 4 km back home from the garage by bike:
In my opinion, it's a very good thing that McDonalds is located only in the outskirts of the city and not in the centre.
