Hazardous Waste Program

Penalty Policy

The goal of enforcement is to return a company to compliance in a timely fashion and discourage future noncompliance after all other attempts at compliance have failed.  The Hazardous Waste Program's Compliance and Enforcement Section uses standardized policies to evaluate non-compliance situations.  These policies ensure that all companies are treated in a fair, equitable manner. 

For additional information, contact the Compliance and Enforcement Section at 573-751-7560.  If you would like information and updates on compliance issues, visit DNR Enforcement and Compliance Assistance Newsletter Generators Subscription to sign up for the hazardous waste generator electronic newsletter.  Newsletter archives are available at DNR Hazardous Waste Generator Archive.
