Stakeholder Update

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources wishes to continue discussions with stakeholders but has not yet scheduled the next meeting on those discussions.

In the meantime, as a result of SCR 38, the Hazardous Waste Management Commission will hold a Public Hearing at a Special Meeting tentatively scheduled for Aug. 7, 2020. The department has received approval to file the regular amendment following up the emergency rulemaking for 10 CSR 25-12. This will remove the amended language and return it to its previous version.

August 7, 2020 – Public Hearing in response to SCR 38 on 10 CSR 25-12 amendment

  • Agenda/materials to follow

The health and safety of all visitors to state office buildings are priority. Due to concerns regarding the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, only remote participation is available. Those who wish to participate may call in to this meeting at 866-230-0963 (no PIN needed).


In August 2019, the Hazardous Waste Management Commission voted to allow the department to move forward with the rulemaking process on a proposed fee increase. The Missouri General Assembly disapproved the Hazardous Waste Management Commission’s rulemaking to temporarily increase fees. Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 38 was signed by both Chambers on March 5, 2020. Pursuant to SCR 38, the department filed an emergency rulemaking with the Secretary of State to remove the proposed temporary increase.

The Department continues to assess the hazardous waste fund and our ability to sustain future services, including any potential economic impacts due to COVID-19.

Please stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to continue submitting fee expansion thoughts or comments to Chris Nagel at or John Jurgensmeyer at
