Waste Connections - New Residential Hauler 8/1/19

Waste Connections has taken over from Meridian Waste as the residential waste hauler for the City of Wildwood.  The new waste hauler agreement with Waste Connections is for two years, with an option to extend for three additional years.  

Please Have Trash, Recycling or Yard Waste at the Curb by 6:30 AM: To ensure our new trash hauler, Waste Connections, does not miss you, Residents are reminded to have trash, recycling or yard waste at the curb by no later than 6:30 AM on your scheduled collection day. While collection days for trash, recycling or yard waste have not changed, your actual collection time may differ from that of Meridian.  

Service Account: Assuming you have an existing account for basic service with Meridian Waste, that account will automatically transfer to Waste Connections. If you had yard waste with Meridian, that service will also transfer.  For new residents and residents of newly built homes, contact Waste Connections directly to setup new accounts.  

Please email or call Waste Connections for the following

  • To set up your 15% discount on your next invoice if you are over the age of 65. Documentation will be required. 
  • To set up Yard Waste Service (if you did not already have this service with Meridian)
  • To rent a trash toter for $3.15/month.

Rates: With the new agreement, on August 1st residents can expect a reduction in their monthly bill for basic services (trash and recycling) from $17.20/month to $16.05/month.  Optional yard waste will remain at $10.30/month.  Optional 95-gallon Cart Rental (for trash) will cost $3.15/month.  The current 15% senior discount will be retained, but will not automatically transfer.  After July 15, contact Waste Connections to apply senior discounted rates to your account.

Billing: Your first invoice dated August 1st will be prorated for 2 months of services:  August and September.  All subsequent invoices will be for 3 calendar months, billed on calendar quarters. If you are currently signed up for yard waste service, that will transfer.  If you want to add yard waste please call after July 15th. Your pick up days for all services will remain the same

Single Stream Recycling: With the change to Waste Connections, the City Council approved switching our recycling program from dual-stream back to single-stream recycling, and therefore, your new fiber recycling cart will be recovered - please see below.  

Fiber Recycling Cart Recovery: If your fiber recycling cart has not been removed, please contact Waste Connections at 636-321-2100 or email at  wcmissouri@wasteconnections.com to schedule the removal.  

After your cart removal has been scheduled, you will need to leave the empty fiber cart in front of your garage on your regular recycle day for removal by Waste Connections beginning the week of August 12th.  If customers don’t have a garage (or it can’t be seen from the street), they should leave the cart at the end of their driveway, with a sign marked “Remove”.

Carts not removed the week of August 12th will be removed the week of August 19th.
