At their November 1st meeting the Board of Aldermen unanimously approved awarding Meridian Waste the City’s trash contract for 2023-2027. The contract includes City-wide residential trash, recycling, yard waste, bulky items and white goods. Please note that unlike our current contract, the upcoming Meridian Waste Contract does not provide for unlimited trash pick-up. 

A few highlights of the contract:

  • The monthly rate for trash/recycling and yard waste will be $24.56 in 2023. It will increase slightly (less than $2.00 each year) until 2027.
  • Meridian Waste will provide each household one (1) ninety-five (95) gallon trash cart and one (1) sixty-five (65) gallon recycling cart at no charge. You may request a (65) gallon or (35) gallon trash cart in place of the (95) gallon cart the first ninety (90) days of your service starting. 
  • If you require additional carts for trash and/or recycling you must lease them from Meridian Waste at a rate of $5.00 per cart per month.
  • Meridian Waste will provide pick-up for bulky waste items each week with a maximum of two (2) items per week. Bulky items must be scheduled prior to collection.
  • Up to twenty (20) (in total) yard waste bags containers or bundles will be picked up each week.
  • Meridian Waste will collect white goods one (1) time per month. White goods must be scheduled prior to collection.


More information will be rolling out on the City’s website and through emails and social media in the coming weeks.
