Recycling Grant Provides Optional Larger Recycling Carts

Last year, Meridian Waste Services was successful in obtaining a recycling grant through the St. Louis-Jefferson Solid Waste Management District to provide larger recycling carts to its customers.  A total of 1,740 carts became available last August, and over 500 of them still remain.  The larger carts are 95 gallons in size, compared to the standard 65 gallon carts in use today, and also dark green in color.  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.
