- Annual Gifting of the Turkeys for neighbors of Meridian Waste landfills - 


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (November 21, 2021) – Meridian Waste, an integrated, non-hazardous solid waste services company, has kicked off Thanksgiving week by spreading joy through the Gifting of the Turkeys community initiative. Neighbors who live adjacent to the company's landfills will receive free holiday food provisions throughout the organization's operational footprint. 

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, turkey delivery began on Saturday, November 20, with team members delivering main courses to local residents. This is the second year in a row for the company-wide philanthropic program, which began in Meridian Waste’s Missouri market in 2019. Currently, Meridian Waste managers are providing holiday turkeys in the following locations:

  • Eagle Ridge Landfill, Bowling Green, Mo. 

  • Shotwell Construction and Demolition Landfill, Wendell, N.C.

  • Riverside Construction and Demolition Landfill, Knoxville, Tenn.

  • Lunenburg Landfill, Lunenburg, Va.

Within the four U.S. states which serve as home to Meridian Waste landfills, more than 100 turkeys were delivered to neighbors equating to over 1,400 lbs. of the holiday favorite. Recipients received a postcard in November about the gifts of turkeys for planning holiday meals. For more information about Meridian Waste, visit the website at
