FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Department of Natural Resources issues construction permit for solid waste processing facility in St. Louis

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, OCT. 21, 2019 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has issued a construction permit to STL Land Development, LLC to construct a solid waste processing facility in St. Louis. The facility will produce alternative solid recoverable fuel that is derived from post-recycled municipal solid waste. When the facility is fully functioning, it will be able to process as much as 2,250 tons per day of municipal solid waste diverted from local landfills.

The site is to be located at 401 Adelaide Ave., east of Interstate 70 and west of the Mississippi River. It is accessible from Carrie Avenue to the northwest or Adelaide Avenue to the southeast in St. Louis.

The department reviews all applications submitted by cities, counties and private owners to ensure that solid waste processing facilities are properly designed and constructed. Other technical factors that protect Missouri’s environment also are examined.

Prior to acceptance of waste at the facility, an operating permit must be issued. Questions and comments regarding the solid waste processing facility or the department's role in regulating solid waste processing facilities may be sent to: Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Waste Management Program, P.O. Box 176, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176 or by phone at 1-800-361-4827 or 573-751-5401.
