Atlanta-based Meridian Waste Solutions Inc. says its contract with the city of Florissant, Missouri, has been renewed through the spring of 2021. Meridian says it will continue to provide garbage and recycling pickup services to more than 17,500 homes in the city, which is a northern suburb of St. Louis.


 “We’ve enjoyed servicing the residents of Florissant for the last eight years with dependable environmental services the city leadership and citizens have come to count on every week,” says Chuck Barcom, area vice president for Meridian Waste. “Renewing our contract is a testament to our service and investment within the city, and we look forward to growing our partnership over the coming years.”


Services to the city include once-a-week trash and once-a-week recycling residential pickup. Yard waste collection is available for an additional fee, and customers can select if they want the service year-round or for three months at a time, says the company. Meridian will provide seasonal yard waste pick-ups at no charge to the residents on the second pickup of the month during April, July, November and December. Bulk pickup is available on the third pickup day of the month when scheduled with Meridian in advance.


Meridian says it also will continue to provide service at no charge for the Valley of Flowers and Fall Festival events in Florissant.


Meridian Waste Solutions Inc. describes itself as a vertically integrated, nonhazardous solid waste services company focused on residential and commercial waste collection and disposal, but it also says it has “a fundamental objective to seek rewarding environmental solutions through innovation.” The company currently operates in the St. Louis and in the Richmond, Virginia, regions, servicing more than 113,000 residential, commercial, industrial and governmental customers. The company operates a fleet of commercial, residential and roll-off trucks, plus four transfer stations, one recycling facility and three municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills.
