BOSTON- The last vestige of Boston's record winter nightmare snow finally melted away.

The mayor announced Tuesday the once-massive pile is now nothing. But it did leave its mark. It contained more than 80-tons of garbage.

The pile got to be 75 feet tall after last winter's record-breaking snowfall. Two snowstorms struck after people put their trash out on the curb and it got swept up by snow plows.

The trash was incorporated into the giant snow tower.

The mayor even held a contest to guess when it would melt and he'll announce the winner on Wednesday.
