More than 20 adults were joined by a dozen children from the Topsham Sea Scouts at the annual reed bed clean-up in Topsham on Saturday (February 28).
Volunteers, wearing boots and gloves, braved the cold weather for the event, which started at the Halyards end of the Recreation Ground and worked north.
The full bags were then removed by Exeter City Council.
Daphne Burdick has been organising the clear up for around 15 years and this year saw less rubbish collected than in recent years.
She said: “This year we didn’t find anything exciting, which means its getting better.
“We no longer get fridges and freezers that we used to find.”
