An Open Letter from Meridian Waste - March 1, 2019

Dear Meridian Waste - City of Wildwood Recycling Customer:

As a reminder, Meridian Waste is beginning to place recycling stickers on existing carts as well as delivering the second recycling cart beginning this week and will continue through the month of March. Your recycling service officially changes to dual stream recycling collection on April 1, 2019

What’s Changing ... 
You can still recycle curbside but there are two big changes:
1. We are moving to dual stream so you will now have two separate recycling containers collected on alternating weeks. One container is for RIGIDS (plastics & metals) and one container is for FIBER (paper & cardboard). You will be receiving a second recycling cart in March.

2. Glass will no longer be recycled curbside. Residents have the option to use new recycling drop-off sites for Fiber and Glass only. The drop-off sites will be listed on the Meridian Waste Wildwood website by March 25, 2019. 

Cart Delivery ... 
Your new recycling cart will be delivered in March, and you will notice both FIBER and RIGIDS stickers with recycling instructions will be placed by our team on both carts. 

To learn more about the recycling crisis visit:

Please click to view the Wildwood New Recycling Collection Schedule Calendar effective April 1, 2019. PRO TIP: Print out the PDF calendar to hang near your recycling carts. 

If you would like to place a recycling sticker on your own recycling bin, you can request an additional FIBER or RIGIDS sticker by contacting our dedicated Wildwood Customer Care Agent, Heath Goodrich, at 314-291-3131, Ext. 2432. He is available to assist Wildwood customers Monday - Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Your Meridian Waste Team


Dual Stream Recycling Now Effective April 1, 2019

In response to resident feedback, the Wildwood City Council voted on January 14th to implement the following dual-stream curbside recycling program on April 1. The new recycling program means that Meridian residential customers are requested to use two separate recycling containers - one for plastics & metals (Rigids) and one for paper & cardboard (Fiber) collected on alternating weeks.  This program will result in cleaner, less contaminated recyclables, which will create more local and regional markets willing to accept this material, in lieu of shipping overseas.

Summary of Dual-Stream Recycling ... 

Rigid Recyclables
When: Beginning the week of April 1, 2019
Where: Curbside every other week (on alternate weeks as the “Fiber” material pickup)
What: "Rigid" materials will be collected as follows:

o        Plastics containers containing the recycling code 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 (non-black)
o        Aluminum
o        Tin and steel cans

Fiber Recyclables
When: Beginning the week of April 8, 2019
Where: Curbside every other week (on alternate weeks as the “Rigid” material pickup)
What: "Fiber" materials will be collected as follows

o        Cardboard
o        Mixed papers

Glass: If residents wish to recycle glass, Meridian Waste will be establishing a few drop-off locations throughout Wildwood for this material; otherwise it can be placed in the trash. The locations for drop-off of glass will be announced soon.

Additional Recycle Bin:  Meridian residential customers will receive an additional 65-gallon recycle toter by April 1st, with an option to increase this size to 95-gallons.

Cost: Meridian residential customers will see an increased cost of $0.50/month, until August 1, 2019, when a new long-term contract is established through a competitive bidding process. 

Residents will receive a letter from the City of Wildwood describing the program in more detail. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us at or visit the recycling page of our website:

“Wildwood 2020”

Mayor Bowlin announced his vision plan for the City of Wildwood during the City Council Work Session held on Monday, October 9, 2017.  The plan was developed based on input from residents and other stakeholders, and calls for improving residential experience and a renewed focus on the City’s original plans, said Mayor Bowlin. 

“I’m very committed to things that benefit our residents and businesses, and there’s so much we can do to make Wildwood even better for them. My plan incorporates ways to make that happen with optimal cost efficiency,” said the Mayor. The plan includes several proposed projects that will benefit residents in all eight wards, along with implementation guidelines that include resident participation and input.

History Book Cover

Your Story in Wildwood is Important

The next chapter (and fourth) in the Wildwood History Book covers the era from the Roaring 20's to 1990. The first three (3) chapters of this book covered eras that occurred many, many years ago. However, now, with this next chapter, many residents and others have been in this area and remain today. This era and the residents from it allows the City a unique opportunity for all us. If you would like, please write down a thought or two (2) about a special time, a special place, or some other memory you have about this area from this timeframe, submit it for consideration, and it may end up in the book. Your prose does not have to be anything fancy, but just your impressions of what made, and makes, this area special. Please forward these short paragraphs, with your name and contact information, to Kathy Arnett at you in advance for your participation. 

Better Together - City/County Merger

It has been in the news and many people are discussing this important issue for the region. The report that has been prepared by the group advocating this merger can be found at the following link - Better Together Report.

The City of Wildwood passed a Resolution in 2017 that stated it did not support a Statewide vote on this matter, but rather let the residents of the region impacted by its outcome have the voice. See below regarding Wildwood's position on this important matter. 
City Council Resolution #2017-38
City Council Resolution #2017-38


Preserving Wildwood Values, Character, and Assets

A new ad-hoc Commission of resident volunteers was recently authorized by City Council at its meeting on February 25, 2019. This Commission is being charged to evaluate the assets the City has relative to what makes it unique and the special place it is to live, work, and play, then prioritize them, and, thereafter, create strategies to protect them in the future, if Wildwood city government were to change in the future. With the Better Together merger plan being debated, Wildwood leaders want to ensure that, whatever might happen, the core values and character of Wildwood will remain. This Commission's meetings will be open to the public and your input is important, so please attend.
