Curbside grass and leaf recycling is an optional additional recycling service for Meridian residents.
For an additional fee ($8.74 per month), you will be provided with a separate 95-gallon yard debris cart for your grass clippings. Please contact Republic Services at 208-345-1265 to set up this service.
This service will keep the grass out of the landfill and instead, those clippings will be transported to a silage pit in Ada County where they will be reused beneficially for agricultural purposes.
