Sewer project begins nearly 60 years later

DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - On Saturday, the city of Decatur and Advanced Disposal hosted a Clean Up Day at the Decatur Civic Center. 

The city has had this project the past four year. All morning people disposed of large items for no charge. Items including old furniture mattresses and house hold items were accepted.

Organizers say this is important because it gives people the opportunity to get the neighborhoods cleaned up. The City Wide Clean Up is part of the city's initiative designed to reinvigorate and improve neighborhoods.
