Container First Services Hosts Earth Day Coloring Contest for Children


Container First Services (CFS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, is hosting an Earth Day-themed coloring contest, “Brightening the World” for children ages 5-10 to help keep them stimulated while spending more time at home.


The purpose of the “Brightening the World” coloring contest is to introduce the concept of Earth Day and how waste management plays a major role in the health and safety of our communities. CFS is providing this free contest for children creating an activity to participate in while schools are closed and they’re spending more time at home.  

The contest has two age categories for children to participate in with specific coloring sheets for the age groups 5-7, and 8-10. Coloring sheets will be available for download for children to create their art, and for upload via JPG/photo or PDF to participate in the contest. There is no purchase necessary, and the contest is open to children of Meridian Waste customers and non-customers alike. 


The contest is open from March 23 - April 18, 2020. The winners will be announced on the website on April 22, with prizes mailed in late-April 2020.


Children across the United States are eligible to win. The contest takes place online. Official Rules, coloring sheets, and more information on how to submit your art can be found at


We wanted to help out communities, and people with young children at home, over the next few weeks by giving them something fun and positive on which to focus. Proper solid waste management is an important part of our collective effort to keep our neighborhoods and the greater community clean & green.”  said Meridian Waste CEO Wally Hall. 

This contest is designed to give children and their caregivers an outlet to participate in by focusing on the greater good of being considerate to Mother Earth. Proper disposal of trash and recycling materials starts at home. 

These efforts reinforce CFS & Meridian Waste’s commitment to the communities they serve by proving the simple joy of children coloring while utilizing green efforts with the download of the coloring sheets and the upload of the artist’s submission.
