Residents keen to keep their little bit of Britain clean can now do so by borrowing a street sweeper or a leaf blower and doing it themselves.
South Cambridgeshire District Council is making some of its equipment available after requests from some parish councils and community groups.
The first area to benefit is Melbourn, where volunteers have already been trained to operate the ride-in sweeper.
They'll be able to use it on paths and cycle-ways, and when it's not being used by them it'll be housed at a local garden centre so other groups can pick it up.
That, and a leaf and litter vacuum, can only be used by people who have been trained by the council.
In addition, communities are being provided with tools like litter-pickers, gloves and bags to help them run their own "big clean" events.
The council said the initiative was "in addition to the currently scheduled and reactive clean-up work carried out by its operatives".
Melbourn councillor Philippa Hart said "the sweeper and our volunteer drivers will help enormously" in the effort to keep the area clean.
