Garbage stickers in Quincy are getting more expensive. On an 11-3 vote, the Quincy City council increased the price to 75 cents. Residents also have the choice of using a larger tote for a monthly fee. The increase is effective May 1.

The tote container would cost 12.99 a month. The council also voted unanimously to enter a five year contract with Quincy Recycle Paper Incorporated for recycling services.

Council members voted 11-3 against a bid from Evans recycling for the city’s yard waste. Another bidder’s proposal will be considered next week.
