An Aberdeen community’s first clean-up event has been hailed as a success that has helped to make a “massive difference” to the area.
More than 20 bags of rubbish were collected during the first Seaton Spruce Up, which began at Northsea Court.
Volunteers also filled two black boxes and two white bags of recycling – all of which have now been disposed of properly.
The event on Sunday was organised by Seaton resident Lewis McGill alongside the newly-established Seaton and Linksfield Community Network.
The clean-up aimed to bring the Seaton community together and generate a sense of pride in the area.
On the day, plastic high-visibility vests were provided to volunteers by Keep Scotland Beautiful.
Mr McGill said: “We had over 20 bags of refuse collected by Seaton residents.
“We also had councillor Alex McLellan helping. It was great to see residents working together under the Seaton and Linksfield Community Network.
“This was the first clean-up that we have done since starting the network and it was a huge success.
“We are even discussing next year’s plans.”
The community also hopes it will show Aberdeen City Council residents are serious about improving the area.
They hope keeping it clean will help towards future improvements and keep the open green spaces maintained.
Mr McLellan, who represents the Seaton area, was happy to help out.
He said: “It was great to get involved with the clean-up event on Sunday, which was organised by local residents.
“There was a massive amount of litter gathered up and it just shows what can be done when a community comes together.”
It comes after a number of litter picks have increasingly been organised in other areas of the city, including a 24-hour “glitter pick” when Aberdeen City Council officers, park groups and community representatives across Aberdeen took an hour to dispose of any rubbish they found in their areas.
