A demo site on Homer street in Detroit has seen toxic material, believed to contain asbestos, cleaned up by the city after 7 Action News exposed the problem last night. 

The material was dumped at a demolition site in white construction bags, concerning residents - some of whom have children.

Complaints were made, but not acted upon until 7 Action News got involved.

The material was removed at 7:00 am Thursday say neighbors.
