The pictures below show a huge clean-up operation in Cumbrian Way that saw Hull City Council clear more than five-and-a-half tonnes of waste.
The street in Bransholme had become a dumping ground for illegal activity, forcing the authority to step-in and remove a large amount of fly-tipped rubbish.
The area was also litter-picked, with the grounds maintenance team attending to clear back unruly shrubbery and trees.
Teams spent a total of two days cleaning the area, costing the council about £3,800.

Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for waste management, said: “Improving environmental standards is a top priority for the council, and we are prosecuting those who fly-tip.
“What it is important to remember is that where people see fly-tipping, it is because someone has committed an illegal act, not because the council hasn’t cleaned it up.
“I can sympathise with anyone concerned about fly-tipping in our city. We take each instance very seriously and spend more than £250,000 every year cleaning up after people. Our focus is on trying to prosecute those that we can identify, but need information and support from residents to do this.
“Fly-tipping and littering is anti-social behaviour, and there is no excuse for it.”
Those who see fly-tipping should call 01482 300 300, report it online or visit their local Customer Service Centre.
