Youngsters in Sheringham were among those helped by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) to carry out litter picks.
In the past year the council’s environmental services team has supported 107 community litter collection events, helping keep beaches, towns and villages clear of rubbish.
The council loaned rubbish bags, bin bag hoops and litter pickers to groups, as well as picking up the litter that is collected for free.
Annie Claussen-Reynolds, NNDC cabinet member for environmental services, said: “A lot of our residents are passionate about keeping North Norfolk a beautiful place and it’s only right we are able to offer them appropriate assistance.”
The council supplied Sheringham Community Primary School’s eco-group with 10 litter-pickers and 10 bin bag hoops, and headteacher Sue Brady said: “Our eco-group has gone from strength to strength and the donated equipment has helped us no end.”
