Lunenburg Landfill Fall Food & Fun Fest a Success 

Attendees won a drone and TV as raffle prizes at Lunenburg Landfill Festival  


LUNENBURG COUNTY, Va., (Nov. 9, 2021) – Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, hosted its Fall Food & Fun Fest on Saturday, November 6, with raffle prizes including a flat-screen TV and a drone. 

Meridian Waste held the Lunenburg Landfill Fall Food & Fun Fest to showcase the environmental facility and share the company’s appreciation for neighbors in surrounding communities. More than 60 members of the community enjoyed the free BBQ lunch, games and activities, and won a few big-ticket items. The audio headset winners were Trudy Bishop and Tylasia Taylor. Art and Susan Casoni won the flat-screen TV, and Arthur Bennett won the drone.

“We had a great time opening the gates to the community to share our state-of-the-art and remarkably scenic landfill,” said Meridian Waste’s Lunenburg Landfill General Manager Joe Gustaf. “We appreciate meeting our neighbors and hearing from them about their new perspective on the landfill. They enjoyed our facility and taking a tour of the grounds.”

The BBQ lunch included pulled pork, BBQ chicken, and brisket. Event activities included a bounce house, lawn games, a selfie photo area, pumpkin painting, and Touch-A-Truck heavy machinery display. 

The landfill is home to various local wildlife, including bald eagles, blue jays, newts, foxes, deer, and many butterflies. The Lunenburg Landfill provides a vital infrastructure asset to Lunenburg County by offering free disposal to its citizens at multiple community drop-off centers. In addition, the landfill is one of the top revenue-producing properties in the County, with quarterly host fee payments and annual property taxes to benefit the County’s treasury and local citizens.
