A 100-day scheme to clean up part of Sunderland has been hailed a success.
One of the priorities was dealing with fly-tipping
The project in the East End and Hendon was awarded £70,000 government funding and was part of the Home Office's Together campaign.
Priorities included tackling litter, dumping of rubbish in back lanes, fly-tipping and underage alcohol sales.
During the 100 days, a team has removed more than 130 tonnes of rubbish from back lanes, cliff tops at Hendon Beach and waste ground.
Sunderland City Council was awarded the funding and worked on the campaign with Northumbria Police, Back on the Map, Sunderland Youth Offending Service and Sunderland Housing Group.
Council leader Coun Bob Symonds said: "It has been very encouraging to see the support that the majority of residents have given the campaign and I would like to urge those residents to keep up their good work.
"We still need to convince those residents who continue to dump rubbish that their anti-social behaviour is spoiling the neighbourhood for everyone else and it is not acceptable.
"We will take enforcement action against individuals who create environmental problems through anti-social behaviour in order to help build lasting improvements."
The organisations say they will continue to work together in the area.
Back on the Map programme development officer, environment, Sarah French, said: "The 100 Days Clean-up Campaign has been successful in cleaning up the East End and Hendon.
"We have had numerous positive comments from local residents on how good the area is looking."
