A truck dropped nearly a ton and a half of baled residential trash onto an exit ramp off Route 46 in Ridgefield Park and kept going Monday afternoon, authorities said.

The bale fell off around 2 p.m., responders said.

"These bales are always hauled on open flatbeds, usually 12 or so at a time," one said. "This happens a few times a year."

State Department of Transportation workers used a backhoe and dump truck to clear the mess from the ramp, which leads to the NJ Turnpike and Teaneck Road.
