Downtown Quincy promoting spring cleaning on storefronts, sidewalks

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

We have all heard about spring cleaning your garage, car, or basement, but what about your city?

Travis Brown, Executive Director of the Historic Quincy Business District, has asked downtown businesses to help make the storefronts and sidewalks look their best.

Brown asks for any trash, leaves, or cigarette butts to be collected and not pushed into the street.

"And this is a way we can do that. And it really doesn't take much time," Brown said. "And if somebody does see this and thinks oh yeah I need to do that, the other thing is to remember to not push it into the street. The street sweeper only comes down certain times."

Travis Brown also says, even though the businesses may be taking care of the trash, once a garbage can is full, the trash could fly out.
