QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Residents in the Gem City got a chance to kick off their fall cleaning Saturday.

The city-wide cleanup in Quincy allowed residents to drop off items at Payson and front street.

The event was put on by Republic Services, and around 275 cars went through the lot each hour.

Residents were able to throw away extra trash while cleaning up the streets in the process. 

"The opportunity to clean out your house, and go into fall with a clean house, it's a beautiful thing." Operations Manager Jayson Heberlein said. "So for the city of Quincy to give us the opportunity to do this service for the Quincy residents is awesome."

Heberlein also said there were roughly 15 more cars per hour this year compared to last year.
