City of Quincy orders more garbage totes for new program

QUINCY (WGEM) — For those of you having trouble getting new trash totes and recycling bins delivered to you, you’re not alone.

After Quincy’s new garbage collection started May 1, the city is now out of garbage bins.

At Monday’s city council meeting, aldermen approved spending $44,400 on 2,000 additional roll out trash totes.

The purchase is due to the lack of totes available, but Mayor Kyle Moore is also anticipating more people to sign up in the next couple of months due to budgetary reasons.

“We’ve told folks that if you signed up for a garbage tote and it is not delivered, that we will have that address on file and you can simply lay your bags out without a sticker and we will go ahead and pick it up,” said Moore.

Moore says there’s another round of garbage totes coming in at the end of this month. The 2,000 additional ones that the council approved on Monday will be delivered in about three to four weeks.

Also at Monday’s city council meeting:

  • Aldermen approved the resignation of First Ward Alderman Virgil Goehl. Goehl will officially resign at next week’s city council meeting.
  • Aldermen tabled the mayor aldermanic appointment for 5th ward vacancy for one week. Mayor Kyle Moore is hoping to appoint Mark Freiburg to the position.
