The City of Chicago got an emergency court order to clean up a house where a couple was found trapped under garbage and debris.

The home in the 1500-block of East 69th Street is structurally sound and is not going to be condemned.

Jesse and Thelma Taston were trapped in the trash for three weeks before they were found Monday night. They are still being treated at a hospital.

The cleanup will begin next week.
