Quincy (WGEM) – The City of Quincy has announced the first collection points for its recycling program.
Public Works Director Jeffrey Conte said the Pepsi Bottling Company was the first lease they signed.
On Monday night, all 13 members of the Quincy City Council approved the recommendation.
Conte said drop-off will be on the Locust’s 12th Street side at the very end of 1121, which leads to the Illinois Veterans Home lot.
“The container has been ordered. We will sign a contract to maintain the bins. “Once the lease is complete, we need to manufacture the platform, the access platform, and make any necessary site improvements. We still have some work to do.”
Lease payments are $10 over three years, Conte said, with Pepsi leasing the property and the city paying all costs to improve the site.
