On Saturday more than a dozen adults and children joined Cllr Paul Donovan to start back up the monthly Wanstead litter pick and cleaned three parks from George Green, Christchurch Green and Tarzy Wood.
Throughout May, park rangers collected more than 9,000 black bags of waste, the highest amount of rubbish ever left in Redbridge parks.
Council leader Jas Athwal said: “Litter is everyone’s responsibility, and I am grateful that the vast majority of local people tidy up after themselves.
“However, there are always some selfish people who choose to leave their rubbish behind, if everyone would do their part and take their rubbish home if the bins are full it would make such a huge difference.”
