A large number of Quincy residents took advantage of the opportunity to get rid of unwanted items. According to a press release from Allied Waste Services, which conducted the event under a contract with the city, 1,944 vehicles came through the disposal site and dropped off 398 tons — or 4,320 cubic yards — of trash. Vehicles started lining up at 3 a.m., and the average wait time to get through was about 40 minutes. (H-W Photo/Phil Carlson)
