A team of 200 cleaners cleared up to 85 tonnes of rubbish from the streets of London during the first weekend of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
On the first day of the Games last Saturday, a crew of 55 people and 10 vehicles were deployed to clean up litter after the men's cycle race.
Heading up the operation throughout the event is Pascal Hauret, Veolia Environmental Services' London director of municipal services. He commented: "We have been preparing for this immense challenge for a long time and coming so soon after the Jubilee celebrations the team are out in force once again and excelling themselves with their hard work."
