A volunteer group has removed huge quantities of rubbish from the countryside in recent weeks.

So far Clarity Walk clean-ups have made headway in tackling rubbish at Culloden Woods and around both Merkinch and Dalneigh.

Culloden Woods clean up on March 28, the first ever Clarity Cleanup.

Now group founder Matt Wallace wants more people to get involved for one hour on Sundays at 1pm.

“That is over 3000 litres of black bags we have managed to collect in six clean-up walks,” he said.

“I love that we have been able to make a difference in the community like this.”

He added: “I’ll keep saying it, people are lazy to carry their rubbish – so there needs to be more bins installed.

“We are here to help.

“I am sure I can speak for the community in Inverness and say we are sick of the rubbish – and I know many would be more than happy to empty the bins throughout the week to keep our areas clean.

In just 1 hour we collected 250L+ of black bags at Dalneigh field.
