Eleven bags of rubbish including a child's wellington boot were gathered during a Dunmow litter pick.
Staff at Right at Home Bishop’s Stortford & Braintree, which provides care to support people to stay in their home, were inspired by Lesley, one of their clients.
Managing director Christopher Neal said: "Leslie used to work at Stansted Airport as a cleaning supervisor and despite retiring many years ago, he still goes out and picks up litter in Takeley every day.
"Leslie joined us for the litter pick and as soon as he had his kit on he was off on a mission to pick up as much as possible."
As well as the wellington boot, rubbish from The Co-op car park, Mill Lane and White Street included empty beer bottles, soggy wipes, pizza boxes and cigarette butts.
