Discovery Day Closure
The Town of Paradise is advising residents that Town Hall is closed on Monday, June 25 for the Discovery Day Holiday. Recreation facilities are open for normal operations and there are no changes to garbage and recycling collection schedule.
Recycling Reminders
Did you know - recycling is mandatory in the Town of Paradise? It reduces the amount of waste going into the wheeled cart and into landfills.

It's easy to recycle, simply sort your paper products into one blue bag and your containers in another. Cardboard can be placed in a blue bag or broken down and bundled. Don't forget to rinse containers before recycling them (milk cartons belong in your container bag).

See-through blue bags must be used for recycling only. Place recyclables loosely in the blue bag. On collection days, place your bags of recyclables at the curb, uncovered, and outside your wheeled garbage cart. Let's all do our part and recycle! For information, visit the website.
