Hundreds of community and voluntary groups have been enlisted in Glasgow's crusade against 'grime crime'.
Pupils from St Mungo's in Glasgow have taken part in the campaign
About 850 organisations have signed up to the ongoing Clean Glasgow campaign, a £4m scheme to combat litter, graffiti, fly-tipping and dog mess.
The latest move saw the launch of the Clean Glasgow Community and Voluntary Organisations Charter.
About 16,000 paid staff and 30,000 volunteers work across 1,000 voluntary organisations in Glasgow.
Community and voluntary groups who sign up to the new charter can access financial aid, with £50 available towards the cost of carrying out environmental improvements in their area.
A further £200 is available if a group commits to maintaining its project over a longer period of time.
Those who get involved in the campaign will receive a 'community tool kit' offering guidance and support on how to organise clean-ups as well as educational materials and protective equipment, including gloves and litter pickers.
Helen MacNeil, chief executive of Glasgow's Council for the Voluntary Sector (GCVS), said: "The environment that people live in has a huge impact on how they feel, so I really welcome this campaign to clean up our communities.
"It's particularly pleasing that voluntary organisations are involved as they have the commitment and the knowledge to make things happen at a local level."
New teams of uniformed highly-visible enforcement officers have also taken to the city's streets with the remit of charging offenders with on-the-spot £50 fixed penalty notices.
