More than 80 people turned out at the Exmouth Local Nature Reserve on Saturday to clean up the site.
The effort was the 14th annual clean-up event organised by the Exe Estuary Management Partnership.
Although there was less rubbish to clear than previous years, there was still enough to fill half a skip.
Items found included tyres, glass and plastics - with more unusual items including a car seat, vacuum cleaner and a toilet seat.
A large sheet of jagged glass, which posed a significant hidden risk to recreational users in the area, was also removed.
Councillor Bernard Hughes OBE, chairman of the Exe Estuary Management Partnership, said: “A massive thank-you to everyone who joined in, and to the organisations who supported this successful event, which makes such a tangible difference to the very special Exe Estuary.”
