Meridian Waste proposed the change from single-stream to dual-stream after the closure of a local Materials Recycling Facility, which was caused by import bans on recyclable materials imposed by China and other nations. The City Council voted to accept this change on November 13th, December 10th, and on January 14th, 2019. The City will explore different options for recycling, with public input, until the contract extension expires on August 1, 2019 and the City enters into a new agreement with a provider. To provide your input, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closure of the Earth City Materials Recycling Facility (MRF), which was the result of import bans on recyclable materials being imposed by China and other nations, disrupted the local recycling market and the operations of waste haulers that were using the facility, including Meridian. The change to dual-stream recycling will ensure that local and regional markets are viable to accept this material rather than shipping it overseas.
Dual stream recycling will go into effect April 1, 2019, as determined at the City Council meeting January 14, 2019.

This policy is temporary and will continue until August 1, 2019. By then, the City of Wildwood will have a new contract with Meridian or another waste hauler. However, the terms of the new agreement may be similar to this one. We will seek public input on this service.
By August 1, 2019, the City of Wildwood will have a new contract. We will provide information on the program that begins in August as soon as it is available to us.
It is expected that a new solid waste disposal contract will be approved by the City Council during the month of April.. The Administration / Public Works Committee of the City Council has recommended Waste Connections after review of the proposals that were received.
Meridian will designate three or four locations throughout the city with City input. Meridian will also pay for the installation of these drop off locations, so there is no charge to residents or the City.
The cost of the new program will result in an increased cost of $0.50/month beginning on April 1, 2019 and continuing until August 1, 2019, when a new long-term contract is established through a competitive bidding process.
