    I can't think of one- debris is the rubbish resulting from an accident, explosion, etc. I cannot think of an antonym. I will try, though.

    Not everything has an opposite. For example, white is the opposite of black, but what is the opposite of gray?

    :)

    I would say that sunny is the opposite of cloudy.

    There're indirect antonyms such as whole, useful, and valuable.

    :D
