Warmer weather signals Spring cleaning for some Tri-State residents

One man's trash is another man's treasure. That's what Quincy Salvation Army officials want you to remember this Spring. Warmer temperatures mean it's Spring cleaning time for some Tri-State residents.

Scott Andrews, the store manager of the Quincy Salvation Army Thrift Store, says when you come across items such as books, lawn furniture, clothes or your kids old toys don't throw them out. He says instead, you should donate them.

"Call us here at the store, 217-224-5998, and we'll come out and get your items," Andrews said. "We just ask that they're the larger items or if you don't have the means of getting it to us, we can come out and pick it up for you."

Andrews says they will take just about anything except mattresses, used carpet, and rugs. The Quincy Thrift Store is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
