More than 900 people collected almost 2,000 bags of rubbish and recycling in a record number of litter picks in 2018.
This year South Norfolk Council hopes to clean up even more as it launches the Big Litter Pick 2019, and is asking schools and community groups to get involved.
Councillor Kay Mason Billig, cabinet member for environment and recycling, said: 'People of all ages can take part but it's great to see so many children getting involved and learning at an early age how important it is to dispose of rubbish responsibly.'
Running until the end of May, schools and groups could win £200, and all will receive a £20 voucher to spend on their group, charity or community.
Equipment, posters and leaflets are provided by the council, which takes the rubbish away at the end of the event.
