Local councillors Paul Moore, Pat Davies, Dave Hosell and Paul Sandars joined Serco on Saturday to clean up the Ridgeace Canal in Hateley Heath.
Residents had complained to the local councillors about the amount of rubbish that was building up along the towpath.
Over 200 bags of rubbish were collected and Grot Spot funding has been secured by the ward councillors to ensure a regular maintenance plan is put in place going forward.
Cllr Moore said: "Residents have told us that the canal was becoming a magnet for litter. I'm pleased we've been able to clean the canal up and the area is now a lovely place to walk along once again."
