Why can't I use my own cart?
  • Meridian trucks are all automated and set up to pick up Meridian designed carts with the truck’s arm.  
  • By using these carts, it allows the hauler to be more efficient and leaves less room for possible service delays.
  • The contract the City negotiated included this provision; which allows us to better control trash rates.
  • If the 95 gallon trash cart is too large for your needs you can swap your cart for a 65 gallon or 35 gallon option.  You may also swap your 65 gallon recycling cart for a 35 gallon cart. Call 314.291.3131 ext. 4002

Waste Connections also bid to continue hauling the City's trash.  Their fee would have been higher for the same service Meridian Waste will be providing.
