The council are asking for volunteers to join in with a litter pick in Marske tomorrow.
They have been asked to clean the area between Marske and Redcar that runs along the railway.
This area is a green space used by dog walkers, runners and cyclists as well as school pupils.
The litter pick is part of Redcar & Cleveland Council's "Love It" campaign which aims to improve the environment.
Volunteers are asked to meet at 10am at the entrance of Green Lane on Friday.
A well-known wildlife artist has donated a selection of work to his cousin - the mayor of Redcar & Cleveland - to be sold for charity.
Alan M. Hunt, originally from Dormanstown, has sold his work around the world and been awarded honours for his dedication to his craft.
And now he's given a selection of both prints and original paintings to the Mayor, Councillor Barry Hunt.
They will be sold in order to raise money for Coatham House which helps young homeless people and Earthbeat, a theatre group for adults with learning difficulties.
Collectors are invited to come along to Kirkleatham Museum to see what's on offer and make a bid.
And music and comedy festival Redcar Rocks is set to return for the first time in a few years at a brand new venue.
Organisers have confirmed that the festival will take place in September, bringing five stages, camping, a fair and even a silent disco with it.
It's making its return after a few years break.
And this year the event will enjoy a new venue at the Corus British Steel Club in Dormanstown.
There will be music from Ska Boom, Henry's Funeral Shoe, Seagulls and Saltburn's very own Josh Newell Brown.
But there's a comedy line up which is set to include Rob Deering, Dan Nightingale and Teesside comic Patrick Monahan.
The last time the festival took place was in 2014 at Tuned In where The Human League headlined the bill.
