The biggest real business in Quincy is the Sierra Pacific mill. Among other things, they operate a co-generation facility to convert waste biomass to electricity.
On weekends those in the community can "contribute" their yard waste to the co-generator as well. To give those readers who actually live in urbanity a glimpse inside, these photos were taken over the last several months while driving through their log deck to or from the yard-waste drop-off point.

The local ursae (bears) have been coming into town for several months to fatten up on fruit (and un-secured garbage). Now about all that's available is the remainder of a good apple season. A week ago one ambled through our backyard late in the evening on the way to our neighbor's apple tree passing silently just six or eight feet from my wife. Both were surprised and hastily departed in opposite directions without incident.
