Meridian Waste makes significant investment in the communities we serve through the safe and environmentally sound operations and maintenance of our landfills. We resolve to be good neighbors committed to the protection of the environment and sustainability for the long term future.
Highly engineered structures
Meridian Waste landfills are highly engineered structures that protect the natural environment while providing a vital infrastructure to local communities, businesses and residents. They are managed and operated meticulously, providing a safe and cost-effective disposal option for waste.
Modern landfills are designed and built with various layers of protections in place including bottom liner systems, leachate collection systems and gas collection systems for municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. Daily operations are also managed to protect the environment and community around the landfill such as daily cover and groundwater monitoring.
What is RNG?
As waste decomposes, it creates a raw biogas which can be collected and upgraded to Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). RNG is an ultra-low carbon transportation fuel and renewable energy resource that can be used to power or fuel anything that runs on natural gas. This means that our nation’s trash can be used as a transportation fuel, electricity generation, and to heat our homes and businesses.
