Register Your Missouri E-Business
E-cycle Missouri provides the public with the "how" and "where" to recycle their electronic waste in Missouri. The "where" part includes taking unwanted electronics to a recycler registered with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. Missouri recycler's taking part in the department's Voluntary Tiered Registration Program are listed on the department's Registered Electronics Recycling Businesses List.
The department's Tiered Voluntary Registration Program is just that, voluntary, and open to electronics recycling businesses located in Missouri. If you decide to register your Missouri e-cycling business with the department, you will choose one of four tier levels. As the tier levels increase, so does the amount of regulation your business will need to follow. The department will include your business information on their Registered Electronics Recycling Businesses List after your facility passes an Electronic Scrap Recycler Inspection. Your registration level will be noted by the number of next to your business name. This code will help the public choose a recycler at the registration level that best meets their needs.
