Seventy-two bags of rubbish were collected during the recent Big Spring Clean in Gorebridge.
Volunteers, aged from seven to the upper eighties, filled bags and collected bulky rubbish in an event organised by Gorebridge and District Environmental Group (GADEG).
The two-hour session attracted 26 participants.
GADEG keeps the Gorebridge Circular Walk litter-free throughout the year and carries out a targeted litter pick every two to three weeks.
