Residential Services

When it comes to divvying up the household chores and taking out the trash, rest assured that we'll be there to do our part and take the garbage, recycling and/or yard waste away so that you don't have to. It's our goal to make your life just a little bit easier by doing what is expected (and hopefully appreciated) in a timely, courteous and friendly manner. And we won't empty your piggy bank in the process!

Effective February 1, 2017, Meridian Waste is implementing multiple increases to your monthly residential subscription invoice including an environmental services fee and a fuel surcharge. A letter outlining the monthly impact can be viewed here.

Calculation of Fuel Surcharge

The Fuel Surcharge will be updated each month. The diesel rate used to determine the Fuel Surcharge will be the peak weekly-published price per gallon, published on any day in the 30 day period ending on the 15th of that month, as reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration website http://www.eia.gov/petroleum/gasdiesel. The Fuel Surcharge will be determined by cross-referencing this price to Meridian Waste Solutions Fuel Index Table.
