A portable television, five tyres and a microwave were some of the many items found during a community litter pick in Brandon.
The event was the first litter pick organised by Brandon in Bloom.
Armed with litter pickers and waste bags, 29 volunteers collected a total of 72 bin bags of litter.
One resident took to the Little Ouse River in his canoe where he fished out items including a fire extinguisher, school books and four bags of plastic bottles.
Many of the volunteers spent two hours taking part in the event which covered a large part of the town.
The event was held as part of the Great British Spring Clean which aims to bring people together to keep their community clean.
Brandon in Bloom have purchased their own litter picking equipment to enable them to carry out regular litter pick events. Anyone interested in the next event email firstname.lastname@example.org
