Meridian Waste will be using green tags to educate residents and keep the recycling stream clean and free from contaminants. If you receive a green tag on your cart, that means there are incorrect items in your recycling cart that have contaminated the stream. Upon receiving a green tag, please remove the incorrect items and reset your cart at the curb on your next recycling pickup day. We appreciate your cooperation.
