McDonald's fans flog the original plastic straw for THOUSANDS on eBay – so have you got one hanging around?

ANY McDonald’s fan worth their salt will know that the straws have had somewhat of a makeover, switching from plastic to paper in 2018.

But you’re going to wish that you’d hung onto the plastic variety when you see this.

Those who still have the original McDonald’s straw knocking about could make thousands with eBay sellers flogging theirs for up to £4,500.

There are currently 36 listings for McDonald’s plastic straws on the auction site with £5,000 currently being the highest asking price.

But while collectors aren’t quite willing to fork out five grand, it seems that they will stump up to £4,500 with one seller’s listing showing he has sold three at that price making him a profit of £13,500 from the free straws (and he still has three more to sell.)

For those still on the fence, the seller is offering free postage and packaging to sweeten the deal.

The straws were removed from all of its UK restaurants in May 2018 to make way for the paper straws.

The free plastic straws given out by the restaurant were recyclable but the fast food giant took steps in the UK to make its packaging even more environmentally friendly.

McDonald's boss Paul Pomroy said: "Customers have told us that they don't want to be given a straw and that they want to have to ask for one, so we're acting on that.

"Straws are one of those things that people feel passionately about, and rightly so, and we're moving those straws behind the front counter."
