When customers share their positive, above-and-beyond experiences with us as it allows us to recognize outstanding employees and the communities in which they serve.

Gary Brown has made quite an impact on his customers in his one year as a driver with Meridian Waste.  Gwen from Bellflower, Mo. shared her experience with us via our Shout Out program, allowing us to recognize Gary's hard work. Here's what Gwen had to say:

I have the best trash people! I talk to my team whenever I have a chance, and I appreciate their hard work. My husband’s first job was as a trash collector at age 16 - and we know how hard they work! Recently, I had a great experience that I wanted to share. My husband is in treatment for cancer, and we had gotten back to the house after a hospital visit just in time to miss the trash collection. Just in case, I started to haul my carts to the roadside in hopes they might come back for me as the truck had passed. I started pulling the carts out toward the road and looked up to see my Meridian Waste trash team turn around to come to collect my carts. Even better - they got out and helped me haul the carts to the truck to dump my trash. It might have been a simple act for them, but at that moment, I needed their kindness more than they know. Prayers from Bellflower!
