WHY Meridian Waste North Carolina is committed to being a part of the community and is offering an inside experience at the landfill and recycling operations. “Children enjoy seeing our trucks collect and essentially ‘eat’ their garbage when we’re out and on routes in their neighborhoods. Touch-a-Truck offers our biggest fans a chance to get in the trucks and other heavy-duty vehicles to check it out for themselves,” said Meridian Waste North Carolina Area President Josh Daher. “
