Add 'takeaway' charges at fast-food franchises to pay workers to keep streets clean

As fast-food franchises grow, more rubbish is out on the streets. I travel through villages, and through main roads and all I can see is plastic bags with either the name 'KFC' or 'Burger King' or 'McDonalds'. What people don't realise is that this is turning our country ugly, and therefore it needs to stop! I believe a simply small charge on every order that is placed with fast-food franchises should be applied when customers choose to take-away instead of eating in. These businesses should then use these charges to either find workers to clean these roads, or to split between different councils' so they can then pay workers to clean these streets. Even though it shouldn't be others picking up our rubbish, it seems like it will be the only way to either decrease numbers of people who 'take-out' or to maintain our streets clean. It should be the big brands amongst their customers, who should take the responsibility of maintaining our streets clean, away from rubbish.
