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.
Trash, recycle and yard waste is billed quarterly at $73.68 per quarter. (this fee does not include extra cart rental, etc.)
This includes 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 sixty (60) 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. No other carts will be allowed for trash and recycle.
The Waste Connections cart will be picked up following the last pick-up in December.
Please note the new Meridian Waste carts are not be used until after January 2nd.
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.
The City of Eureka contacted Waste Connections about renewing our contract in 2023. They informed us that Eureka was operating under a very old model of unlimited trash collection and any contract moving forward would not include this.
The Board of Aldermen made the decision to go out for bid for trash collection. No other company allowed for unlimited trash pick up.
Based on several factors, Meridian Waste was chosen as the City's new trash hauler.
