MASSIVE HAUL WITH TWO COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP EVENTS TOTALLING MORE THAN 251 TONS OF WASTE REMOVED

 

- Meridian Waste helps make Missouri cleaner with local bulk garbage collection - 

Meridian Waste Missouri partnered last week with the Village of Eolia (population 514) and the City of Wentzville (population 41,164), Missouri, to collect residential bulk waste in an effort to clean up the communities and make taking out the trash easier. 

“Our goal is to always leave a community cleaner and greener than it was the week before,” said Area President Bob Mathis. “I think we accomplished that goal with these two great locations that we have the pleasure of serving. Winter is coming and before the first snowfall, we wanted to provide opportunities to our customers and help lighten the load in and around their homes.”

The City of Wentzville held its biannual Large Item Pick-Up event from September 28 through October 2, and Eolia had a biannual Weekend Clean-Up from October 3 until October 4. With the two collection events, a total of 251.13 tons of bulk waste was collected. The Village of Eolia purged 6.65 tons (or 13,300 lbs.), and Wentzville banished 244.48 tons (or 488,960 lbs.) of bulk waste from their homes. 

According to Mathis, community clean-up events are a positive way to keep communities clean and offer citizens a way to remove bulk items from their homes, free from additional charges through their municipality’s contract with Meridian Waste.  Bulk waste consists of large items that do not fit in a standard 95-gallon Meridian Waste trash collection cart. The items may include furniture, toilets, sinks, old mattresses, and other non-hazardous waste. Citizens are advised to confirm acceptable items with the local communities’ garbage guidelines or collection event specifications.
