ABOUT 32,000 tonnes of rubble and dust was collected by clean-up workers following the demolition at Didcot A Power Station on Sunday.
Teams from Coleman and Co, the demolition firm which brought down three of the cooling towers, began the clean-up as soon as the demolitions were completed shortly after 5am.
A spokeswoman said: “The operation went according to plan.
“We used road sweepers and mobile jetting units and got the roads back open by 7am."
The rubble and dust, which was collected by the teams, has been left on the site and will be used in its redevelopment.
There are no firm proposals for what will be built on the land.
It is expected the total clear-up of the site where Didcot A stood will be completed within eight weeks.
