Council litter warden Pearse McCrory commended the "tremendous work" of people in various towns, villages and rural areas across the peninsula.
“Our mobile litter unit picked up over two tonnes of waste over the weekend and this does not include the waste collected in Buncrana and Carndonagh," said Mr McCrory.
"It was great to see such strong community spirit and the sense of pride that people have in their own areas."
