EGG-citing Earth Day Easter Egg Hunt at Shotwell Environmental Park
More than 200 Neighbors and Community Members Kick off Earth Month and the Easter Season 

Raleigh, N.C. (April 2, 2022) – Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, celebrated an Earth Day themed event on Saturday, April 1 with more than 200 guests from Wake, Johnston, and other neighboring counties at the Shotwell Environmental Park,4724 Smithfield Road in Wendell, NC.

The morning festivities were kicked-off with a complimentary breakfast sandwich and fruit, outdoor activities including an inflatable obstacle course and a bounce house, Meridian Waste’s signature Touch-A-Truck field, egg painting, face painting, and outdoor games.  

Approximately 120 children participated in the 3,015-egg Easter Egg Hunt. The hunt field was divided into three age groups from two to four years of age, five to seven years of age, and eight to 10 years of age. In each field, five hand-painted Earth Eggs were hidden, and each lucky child who found an egg received a special prize. All egg hunt participants received an Earth-themed Easter bag complete with wildflower seeds, candy, bubbles, and information about Meridian Waste’s national Earth Day Coloring Contest.
