South Norfolk has been given a spring clean by the district's council.
Building on last year's 'Clean Sweep', South Norfolk Council has had its sweepers out and about across the area to ensure it is looking its best for the summer.
Parish councils and residents were asked to let them know about particular areas in the district that could benefit from a clean-up.
It also used social media to ask residents the places they thought needed a tidy.
Starting in May, in the Tiffey Valley, and finishing this week in Eastern Rivers Valleys, the council's fleet of sweepers have visited each of South Norfolk's neighbourhoods.
Keith Kiddie, cabinet member for environment and regulation said: 'Our crews have swept over 1,800km of roads and pavements and collected more than 500 tonnes of material.
'This is an added service to our normal routine and allows us to respond to requests from our parish councils and residents to give specific areas a deep clean.

'By asking for the community's input and working with community groups who organised litter picks, this year's sweep was even better than the first.
'The results are fantastic and show what can be achieved when we work together.'
