WHY “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.
