It's time to gather up all that junk you have been wanting to get rid of as the City of Quincy, despite the current pandemic, will again conduct the annual City-Wide Cleanup.

This year's collection will be held on September 26, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. The City of Quincy offers this annual event to assist Quincy residents only in disposing of unwanted items that are not typically collected with weekly residential service. This year's event will once again take place at the lot on Front Street and Payson Avenue.
