SINGLE STREAM RECYCLING CHANGES FOR THE CITY OF TROY

Helping to Keep the Environment Clean and Green Becomes 
Even Easier in the City of Troy

 

WHO: Meridian Waste Missouri, LLC, a subsidiary of Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, and the City of Troy, Mo., are announcing the start of the Single Stream Recycling Program for all participating residents. 

WHEN: Effective January 1, 2021, curbside single-stream (one cart) recycling will replace the current dual-stream (two carts) recycling program. All clean, acceptable recyclable materials will now be placed in one cart for collection. 

WHERE: All participating homes within the incorporated areas of the City of Troy, Mo.

WHAT: Household curbside recycling will be easier for the residents of Troy. Meridian Waste, municipally contracted, has worked with City officials to streamline the recycling program to include all recyclable items in one 65-gallon cart. 

The following items are acceptable for curbside single-stream recycling: plastics (label #s 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7); aluminum and steel cans; mixed paper (newspaper, magazines, junk mail, office paper, etc.); tissue boxes; cereal boxes; other clean fiberboard items, and corrugated cardboard (flattened with tape removed). 

  • Items must be clean, with non-paper items rinsed. 

  • Soiled or food-contaminated items (like greasy pizza boxes) should be placed in the non-recyclable garbage.

  • Glass and plastic bags, or plastic film, are not acceptable as they are common contaminants in the recycling stream.

WHY:  “Recycling markets in the greater St. Louis area have experienced significant challenges over the last three years. We are pleased to have partnered with INC Environmental to accept, process, and re-market the recyclable collections with the single stream on behalf of the City of Troy and other communities we serve,” said Area President Bob Mathis. “The new single stream recycling program will make recycling easier and more accessible to all households in hopes of greater participation to keep the environment clean and green.”

Single-stream recycling is just one of the updates made with Meridian Waste and the City of Troy’s extended contract. Other features include:

  • Meridian Waste will collect the additional 95-gallon recycling carts previously used in the dual-stream program which ends December 31, 2020. The carts will be collected the week of Dec. 21 during regular collection. The remaining 65-gallon carts will be re-labeled with the new recycling information during the week of December 28. 

  • All solid waste program information, including garbage collection, recycling, yard waste, bulk item pickup, appliances, and metals guidelines can be found in the Collection Guidelines posted in the Helpful Links section of MeridianWaste.com/Troy.

  • The $1 per month recycling fee ends December 31, 2020.

  • Contact designated Customer Care Agent Sandi Gregson, (314) 291-3131 ext. 4000, or [email protected]

  • 24-hour call back response time (excludes weekends).

  • Cart Service/Delivery within seven (7) days or less is guaranteed.

  • Guaranteed savings due to no price increases to the City of Troy citizens for 2.5 years.
