+ Palm Coast man, 65, caught painting over political signs
Steven Paskewich, of Palm Coast’s 4 Rocking Lane, was arrested May 22 after Flagler County Sheriff’s Office deputies witnessed him spray-painting a political sign at the intersection of State Road 100 and Belle Terre Parkway.
Paskewich, 65, was charged with two counts of criminal mischief and transported to jail. He then posted $500 bond.

+ New Waste Pro bins to credit points for recycling
Waste Pro will deliver new residential recycling bins this week, containing a computer chip and barcode that will identify every resident’s address. Each time collectors pick up recyclables, an electronic device on their truck will read the barcode and give credits for recycling on that specific day.
Credits will earn the resident a spot in the city’s new rewards program for discounts at local businesses and qualification in quarterly prize drawings. The more often a resident recycles, the larger the reward.
The rewards program is part of the new waste-hauling contract Palm Coast and Waste Pro agreed to earlier this year.
Waste Pro also issued tips for its new credit system, which are listed as follows:
Rewards bin should be used as residents’ primary bin. Only collections from barcode bins will be counted in the rewards program.
Waste Pro updates will be mailed to every resident during June.
After residents’ first recycling pickup from the new bin, they will be automatically enrolled in the new program. To create an account for viewing coupons, updating point status, tracking eligibility and redeeming awards, visit www.wastepro rewards.com.
