Covering / Enclosing Household Garbage
May 1st to November 30th each year
In an effort to keep Paradise clean, the Town is adopting the following regulation:
Residents are advised that effective May 1, 2005 residential garbage is to be covered or enclosed in an appropriate container. Residents can use nets, tarpaulins, blankets, etc or garbage boxes or garbage containers. All garbage is to be placed in regular sized garbage bags whichever method of covering is used. Garbage boxes are to be located 1.5 to 3 meters off the road right-of-way. All other requirements of the Town’s existing garbage regulations shall also remain in effect.
PLEASE NOTE HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE BAGS -- LIMIT OF 10 BAGS PER HOURSEHOLD ON REGULAR GARBAGE DAYS .
Any garbage not covered, will NOT be collected and the property owner will be required to remove such garbage from the street. If such garbage is not removed by the owner and has to be cleaned up by the Town, the total cost of such a cleanup will be invoiced to the property owner and may also be subject to fines as set out in the Town’s Municipal Maintenance By-Laws. Residents will be required to cover garbage between May 1 st and November 30 th each year.
The Town of Paradise thanks its residents for their cooperation on these matters.

Garbage Refuse and Disposal
Garbage is to be placed at the roadside no earlier than 6:00 am and before 8:00 am of the morning your area is scheduled for collection. Garbage should not be left out at the roadside overnight.
Garbage should be placed in an approved polyethylene garbage bag. The maximum weight of any one garbage bag should not exceed 50lbs/22kgs. Kitchen catchers and shopping bags are not permitted.
In order to prevent bags from being torn open by various birds and animals it is recommended that the garbage be placed in either a well constructed garbage box or standard 20 gallon/80 L garbage container. Corrosive agents such as bleach should not be placed on the bags as this practice could cause injury to the garbage collector or any individual that may come in contact with the bags.
Bags containing broken glass should be marked accordingly.
Garbage bags and containers should be placed within 10ft. (3m) of the street where there is no curb or sidewalk. Where there is a curb or sidewalk, the garbage bags and containers should be placed as close to the curb as possible without blocking the sidewalks.
Permanent garbage boxes must be located on the home owner’s property a distance no less than 1.5m (5ft.) and not more than 3.0m (10ft.) off the road right of way.
NOTE: Property boundaries are not necessarily identified by curbs and/or ditches. If uncertain of the location of a property boundary please contact the Town office.
Special garbage collection for items other than regular household garbage is collected every Saturday with the first Saturday of the month reserved for metal items such as household appliances. Car parts or tires will not be collected. Please contact the Town office by at least the Friday before you wish to have items picked up.

Residents are advised that for 2006 the town will not be collecting grass clippings from the previously designated drop-off locations.
Residents are advised that grass clippings can be put out with regular garbage on the regular scheduled garbage day. As an alternative to disposing grass clippings with regular garbage, the following suggestions are offered:
* Residents can cut lawns more frequently thereby eliminating the need to rake up the clippings. Leaving clippings on the lawn provides excellent nutrients for the lawn.
* Use a lawn mower with a mulching blade that mulches the grass clippings.
* Grass clippings can be composted.
