COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Looks Great Services reports more than 1 million pounds of storm debris was removed from Columbus since they began to pick up on Tuesday, April 9.

Supervisor Noah Frederick said the removal has been successful and if the progress continues, the removal could be finished by the end of the week.

The Columbia, Mississippi-based company used two to four trucks to pick up the debris generated from the February tornado.

They reminded residents to place all storm debris in the right of way because they are not allowed to retrieve anything located on private property.
