Customize Your Recycling Experience
Dear Troy Meridian Waste Customer,
Meridian Waste is proud to continue to be your environmental services provider. In January, 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 December, residents can again recycle FIBER at the curb using a second recycling cart.
Please read below for the important changes to your recycling service.
We ask that you please select your second recycling cart or opt out of FIBER recycling at the curb by November 15.
Questions? Please contact your dedicated Customer Care Agent, Heath Goodrich, at (314) 291-3131 x 4000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why Two Carts?
Troy is Switching to Dual Stream Curbside Recycling on December 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.

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 local 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.
