To help you enjoy a crime free holiday season. Look over these tips and more from the Meridian Police Crime Prevention Unit:
Lock it up: Always lock your home and automobiles when you are away.
Communicate: Talk with your neighbors about holiday plans and keep an eye out for each other.
Keep packages out of sight: Remove packages from your automobiles as soon as you arrive home.
Leave lights on: If you go away set up interior and exterior lights on a timer to give the appearance you are home.
Meridian Unlimited Trash Week
Mark your calendars for December 28th-January 2nd for unlimited trash week and December 28-January 8th for unlimited recycling. We all know that we need this after the holidays. All trash and recycling must be contained in bags or bundled and able to fit within an empty cart. Items too large to fit are considered bulk items. Bulk items and non-freon appliances will be collected for free if they are scheduled prior to pick up days. Schedule these pickups with Republic Services at 208-345-1265.
