More than 2,400 volunteers have taken part in clean-ups across Aberdeen.
During 2017, Clean Up Aberdeen held 165 clean-ups, with 2,453 people taking part and 2,003 bags of litter filled.
Clean Up Aberdeen, a group led by Aberdeen City Council’s Environmental Services team, works to encourage the public to help tidy up their local area.
It is part of Keep Scotland Beautiful’s national mass-engagement campaign
People from schools, universities, businesses, sports clubs and community groups donated their time at a series of events.
Convener of the city council’s communities, housing and infrastructure committee Councillor Yvonne Allan said: “The 2017 Clean Up Aberdeen campaign was a fantastic success with regulars and newcomers pitching in to help rid the city of litter.
“We would always ask people not to litter in the first place as it is unsightly, bad for the environment, and is antisocial.
“We look forward to the 2018 campaign starting in March and working with communities, groups and individuals around Aberdeen helping to continue to ensure our city is a beautiful place to live, work and visit.”
A number of events were held during the year.
In March Aberdeen Boat Club conducted a litter pick on the Banks of Dee, beside Wellington Suspension Bridge.
In July, the council’s environmental team organised a Glitterpick, designed to help the city sparkle in the summer months.
Teams from a number of different organisations including Aberdeen Boat Club, Friends of Seaton Park and DolphinWatch picked up litter and collected around 300 bin bags full of rubbish.
November saw volunteer group Surfers Against Sewage hold its autumn beach clean at the River Don end of Aberdeen beach.
A total of 44 bags of rubbish were collected by 30 volunteers, including tyres, plastic pipes, cans and plastic bottles to be recycled.
