QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The date for the next city-wide cleanup in Quincy was announced Wednesday.

Mayor Kyle Moore's office reported this year's cleanup is set for Sept. 30. The cleanup will take place at Front Street and Payson Avenue from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In a news release, the city stated people must be through the intersection of 4th and Payson by 4 p.m. or they will be turned away. If people have multiple loads, they're encouraged to bring the first load as early as possible.

The city released the following requirements:

  • Line for Cleanup will be on Payson Ave. Please be courteous and go to the end of the line when getting to the cleanup site. 
  • Have your ID ready at 4th and Payson as you will need to be a Quincy resident to proceed. 
  • No Commercial Haulers will be allowed into the cleanup.  
  • Trucks with trailers will be directed to use the far left lane.
  • Please ensure that you bring help to unload your materials as Republic Services is there to operate trucks and not to unload. 

Officials said electronics (Televisions/Computers), tires, yard waste and liquids (oil, fuel, paint, etc.) will not be accepted.

The city also reported that due to state and federal laws, any appliances containing refrigerants must have a sticker certifying the refrigerant has been properly reclaimed.
