All 1,361 restaurants will begin the roll-out from September, with the process to be completed next year.
In addition to the USA testing, McDonald's will implement paper straws in all 1,361 of its restaurants in the United Kingdom and Ireland, with the rollout scheduled to begin in September and conclude by 2019.
An increasing number of businesses are removing plastic straws from their operations in a bid to stem plastic waste which pollutes oceans and harms marine wildlife such as turtles and fish.
McDonald's has also set a goal of making all of its customer packaging come from renewable, recycled, or certified sources by 2025, with an additional aim of having recycling available in all restaurants.
The chain has been working with start-up Transcend Packaging, based in Wales, and Huhtamaki, an worldwide company that will produce the straws in Belfast.
A straw, which is used for only 20 minutes on average, can take more than 200 years to break down into smaller pieces and often does not fully disintegrate.
The announcements come amid a global movement to eliminate the use of plastic straws, which are hard to recycle and often end up in the ocean.
Later this year, McDonald's will begin testing alternatives in some restaurants in the United States, France, Sweden, Norway and Australia.
UK Environment Secretary Michael Gove called it a "significant contribution" to helping the environment, and said it was "a fine example to other large businesses". And in Malaysia, McDonald's will try a new approach to dispensing straws - giving them out only if a customer requests one.
