Convicted criminals are being used to carry out unpaid work in the community around Driffield.
Over 12 months, 68 projects were carried out across the East Riding as part of a community payback project - including litter clearing in Kilham.
They also cleared waste on Scarborough Road and Star Hill Road, Driffield, and refurbished the pavilion at Rudston
Offenders on court orders are delivering a wide range of community projects due to a partnership between East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Humberside Probation Trust
In the 18 months the council, trust and parish councils have completed or are running up to 100 projects.
Councillor Jackie Cracknell, portfolio holder for community partnerships, said: “There are two huge benefits to our partnership with the trust. It is providing useful services to our local communities and is also helping unemployed offenders learn new skills that improve their prospects of finding work, which is a key step towards reducing re-offending.
“Skilled council officers work alongside the Community Payback teams, including gardeners, painters, and grounds staff, offering guidance and advice.
“By working with parish councils we can identify the sort of projects that residents are wanting. It is making Community Payback more meaningful.”
Gwen Williams, placement manager, Humberside Probation Trust, said: “Tailored projects like these mean that offenders can see an end product to what they have been doing, such as planting trees. It is often the first time they have experienced job satisfaction and can be proud of something.”
