Quincy Garbage Pickup on Streets Only Until Further Notice

Monday will mark three weeks since the massive storm ripped through the Quincy area bringing down thousands of trees with it. The nearly 80 mile per hour winds caused all kinds of problems including loss of electricity, damage to homes and property plus remaining tree damage.  With all that, the city is working hard to clean up the debris left behind and re-establish normal operations.
