Missouri Department of Natural Resources' Hazardous Waste Program publishes the Hazardous Waste Management Commission Report four times a year. It is used as a way to inform the Hazardous Waste Management Commission and other interested parties about the program and department.

The report features articles about current hot topics and explanations of different department processes, including the permitting process. Other past topics include common underground storage tank violations and the status of statewide cleanups, including those in our Brownfields and Superfund program.

Whether a city administrator, private citizen or environmental contractor, the Hazardous Waste Management Commission Quarterly Report contains valuable information written in an easy to understand format. Color photographs throughout the reports help illustrate the topics discussed.
