Carol Hopkins, one of the organisers, said: "These picks bought our total number of bags collected in our first year to 691, which is an amazing achievement."
She thanked the 85 volunteers - who turned up to help team leaders Gemma Woods, Lloyd Harrison and herself - and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council for the loan of extra equipment.
Ms Hopkins added that the locations of the three litter picks have all been "suggested by residents of WGC", and that bad weather never stops their crusade against litter.
