TOWN AND COUNTY, Mo. ( - Neighbors in West County are expressing frustrations with Meridian Waste Services.

Residents in Town and County said the company has neglected to pick up trash for weeks at a time. Mike Bender said the company finally picked up trash on his block Saturday after it sat for three weeks.

“We're all having the same issue because we all use the same service provider, Meridian,” he said.

Meridian serves about 50 percent of homes in Town and Country. City leaders tell News 4 they’ve called, emailed and submitted complaints.

Right now the city is reviewing contracts with all three of its waste service companies. City officials said residents can choose which waste service provider they want.

News 4 first covered issues with Meridian Waste Services after people in Florissant expressed frustrations around the holidays.

Around the same time, Crestwood city officials said they would let their current contract with Meridian expire.

“I've called Meridian numerous times, complained, asked questions,” said Bender.

News 4 contacted Meridian representatives multiple times and was told someone with the company would call back.
