How long will the lines last to dispose of trash?
Last week it was announced that garbage service would be suspended for areas in Plumas County that were under mandatory evacuations and evacuation warnings. Due to the concerted effort of local officials working with Waste Management, arrangements were made for the transfer stations in Chester and Quincy to be open two days a week — Monday and Thursday in Chester, and Wednesday and Saturday in Quincy. Those who tried to dispose of their garbage in Quincy faced long lines. The line moved smoothly, but wait times of up to 30 minutes were reported.
Today Plumas County Sheriff Todd Johns lifted the evacuation warnings in Chester and Quincy — paving the way for a return of service. More information will be shared when it becomes available
