Yard Waste Collection will resume in Quincy the week of March 15.  At that time Evans Recycling will collect yard waste in marked containers and the special yard waste paper bags. Marked containers must be marked with a 2 inch wide stripe in a contrasting color 12 inches from the top of the container.

In order for yard waste (leaves and grass) to be collected, it must be bagged, bundled or in cans (loose) and placed at the curb.  Yard waste can be stored in marked reusable containers or in biodegradable paper bags which are sold in local stores.

Containers should be marked with a 2 inch stripe in a contrasting color approximately 12 inches from the top of the container.  Plastic bags are not accepted. Total weight of bags must not exceed 40 lbs. and 55 gallon drums cannot be used.
