Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

QUINCY (WGEM) -- As the warm weather approaches many residents will start tending to their yards just in time for yard waste pick up returning.

Quincy Director of Central Services Kevin McClean said they use Evans Recycling which will collect yard waste in marked containers and the special yard waste paper bags.

McClean said it's important for residents to follow the rules and only dispose of leaves, grass, or bundled twigs.

"If you have some twigs that are bundled up, they will have to be bundled. You can't just throw them in a pile on the curb they won't pick them up," he said.

"If they don't pick them up then more than likely they are going to lay there for a while. Because our guys are busy doing other stuff and that's why we have Evans. So we really want everybody to try to comply."

McClean said plastic bags are not accepted and 55-gallon drums cannot be used.

Pick-up resumes March 15 and Evans recycling asks that containers are marked with a 2 inch wide stripe in a contrasting color 12 inches from the top of the container.
