If you own a business in florissant can you pick your own trash service? Or does florissant make them use the same trash company that all the residents have to use?

That's good question. You can check with city hall and get the answer if you really need it.

That being said, I like the fact that there is only one hauler in the city. First of all the rates are considerably cheaper for me anyway then when I was using a different one then Meridian. And you don't have all those trucks going down the street all week long. IMO we get could service for a really good price so no complaints here.

If you have problems with Meridian, just go to the website, email them telling them you will go to the city. My brother had a billing problem, which the phone rep refused to fix, emailed them on their web site, fixed the next day.

Commercial and business trash are not covered by the city contract for residential trash. A business can pick any licensed and permitted hauler they want.

The Florissant contract for residential trash with Meridian is for households only.

Same as in the county.

If you have concerns or problems with Meridian, now he time to bring them up to your councilperson or the mayor. The contract expires soon, and the council and mayor need to know about your concerns or problems.

Failure to contact the city hall may result in an extended contract. Voice your thoughts.

Meridian has done a great job. And I agree, if you ever have any problems, just give them a call and they will work it out.

Not necessarily true. My brother had to threaten to complain to Florissant before they would fix his billing problem.

I've also had billing issues with Meridian.

I also have video evidence from my security cameras of the trash truck drivers breaking and damaging trash cans, running over the neighbors mailbox, etc. nothing ever gets done about it.

Can't switch companies because Flo will go after you, so you have no choice but to pay the protection money to Meridian. Years ago I had issues with a trash hauler, and I switched companies, now that's not possible.
