Customize Your Recycling Experience
Dear Lake Saint Louis Meridian Waste Customer,
Meridian Waste is proud to continue to be your environmental services provider. In November 2018, changes were made to your recycling service and since that time, only RIGIDS have been collected as part of your curbside recycling program. We are pleased to announce that beginning in September, residents can again recycle FIBER at the curb using a second recycling cart.
Please read below for the important changes to your recycling service. There will be a $1.00/month program fee for every resident regardless of if they opt out of receiving a FIBER cart.
Please note: Cart delivery will take place the last week of August.
Questions regarding the new Fiber rollout or your cart selection? Please call your dedicated Customer Care Agent at (314) 291-3131 ext. 4001.
Why Two Carts?
Lake Saint Louis is Switching to Dual Stream Curbside Recycling on September 9
Converting to dual stream recycling helps to ensure cleaner, less contaminated recyclables while broadening the marketplace willing to accept and market the materials for reuse and true recycling.
Plastics & Metal Cart (RIGIDS)
Please place only these items in the rigids recycling cart.
- Aluminum, tin & steel cans
- Plastic #s 1, 2, 3, 5, & 7 *Black plastic not accepted
First collection for your Rigids recycling cart will be the week September 9.
Paper & Cardboard Cart (FIBER)
Please place only these items in the fiber recycling cart.
- Mixed paper (newspapers, magazines, junk mail, computer paper, telephone books)
- Corrugated cardboard
First collection for your Fiber recycling cart will be the week September 9.
NOT ACCEPTED FOR RECYCLING CURBSIDE: GLASS
Still want to recycle your glass?
Glass is not accepted in the curbside recycling program due to it being a common contaminant in the recycling stream. You can still recycle glass at your nearest recycling center.

Below are images of the recycling cart stickers that will be placed on each of your recycling carts.
GREEN TAG CUSTOMER COMMUNICATION PROGRAM
Meridian Waste will be using green tags to educate residents and keep the recycling stream clean and free from contaminants. If you receive a green tag on your cart, that means there are incorrect items in your recycling cart that have contaminated the stream. Upon receiving a green tag, please remove the incorrect items and reset your cart at the curb on your next recycling pickup day. We appreciate your cooperation.
