PARADISE, N.L. —

The Town of Paradise is helping residents get rid of their garbage and recyclables that have been piling up since before snow storm last week.

Milton Road softball field has been designated as a drop-off site today, with several crew members available to unload bags from vehicles.

Even before it opened at 8:30 a.m., more than a dozen cars were lined up at the site. By 9:30 a.m., crew members said they had already seen close to 100 vehicles pass through.

“It’s been steady go here,” one worker said.

The town opted to have a designated drop-off site due to interruptions with collection as a result of last week’s snow storm and state of emergency.

The drop-off site is opened until 3 p.m. today.

Regular garbage and recycling collections in the town resumes Tuesday, according to the town’s website.
