WASHINGTON, Ill. -- Nearly four months after the tornadoes Washington has now removed about two-thirds of the debris--most of it has been removed by the city.

Hundreds of thousands of city dollars went towards equipment and manpower.

$1,000,000 went to waste management. Workers say at least 100 trucks have come to just one neighborhood. Each dumpster can hold tons of debris.

"They are lways full--every last one of them full," said Waste Management worker Anthony Randle. "The city's got a bunch of different companies coming in. So, everybody's pitching in to help out from all over. It keeps coming. It's never-ending."

Even though much of the remaining debris is on private property, the city expects it will still have to foot most of the bill.
