SUSTAINABILITY TOPICS >>>

The Shoeman Water Project Shoe Drive Continues 

at Wildwood City Hall

Thanks to everyone who has donated shoes, boots, and sandals to the Shoeman Water Project.  The donation boxes are located at City Hall, 16860 Main Street, in the 1st Floor Foyer.  We appreciate everyone’s support of this worthwhile organization.  To learn more about the Shoeman Water Project, visit www.shoemanwater.org/.

Recycling Grant Provides Optional Larger Recycling Carts

If you find the 65 gallon cart to be too small for your weekly recyclables, please call Meridian Waste Services, at (314) 291-3131, and request one of the larger recycling carts.  Meridian will replace your 65 gallon recycling cart, with a new 95 gallon recycle cart, AT NO CHARGE (the old carts cannot be utilized for anything, but recycling, and will be redistributed to those needing the smaller carts).  Since quantities are limited, the larger carts will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Holiday Light Recycling

The City of Wildwood is pleased to once again partner with Meridian Waste Services’ holiday light recycling program.  No longer wanted strands of holiday lights may be placed in the dumpster supplied for this specific purpose at the end of Wildwood Avenue, which is located just to the east of the Wildwood Municipal Building.  Please do not place light strands in your regular trash, as they become tangled in the equipment at the landfills.  Please do not place them in the curbside recycling containers, since they will not be accepted in the weekly pickup.  Please help keep the City of Wildwood the eco-friendly city we are known to be by placing those unwanted light strands in the appropriate dumpster on Wildwood Avenue. This service is available through the end of February.

American Flag Disposal

The City of Wildwood accepts retired American flags for dignified disposal.  Please bring worn flags to City Hall, 16860 Main Street, and leave them with the receptionist.  All flags collected will be relinquished to the Boy Scouts of America for proper disposal.  US Flags should never be placed in the trash.
