Hazardous Waste Program
Missouri Registry Annual Report
The Registry protects property buyers from unknowingly purchasing contaminated property. Sites listed on the Registry appear on a publicly available list, and a notice filed with the Recorder of Deeds documents hazardous waste contamination at the site. Notice regarding contamination must be provided by the seller to potential buyers. The use of a property listed on the Registry may not change substantially without review and written approval by the department. Department review ensures protection of human health and the environment by preventing activities that would spread contamination, increase human exposure, increase adverse environmental impacts or make future remediation more difficult. The department makes every effort to provide the most complete Registry possible; however, many eligible sites are not yet listed due to pending or ongoing investigations, cleanup negotiations or appeals. Also, unreported facilities or contaminated sites that the department is not aware of may exist.
