Heavy machinery moving solid waste inside a transfer station

The Solid Waste Forum is a stakeholder workgroup made up of representatives from the department, industry, professional consultants, environmental groups, regulatory agencies and citizens interested in solid waste management issues. The forum was created to help maintain open communication between department staff and Missouri citizens. The forum is used to identify solid waste management issues and work to evaluate and develop viable solutions.


Meetings are held as needed and are open to everyone. Attendance at these meetings may be in person, by conference call or through Webex. The department cannot guarantee the quality of the Webex or conference call options. The department attempts to correct any technical difficulties as they arise, but the meeting will not be subject to change or repeat due to any technical difficulties.

If there are issues you would like to discuss during the forum, you will need to notify the department before the meeting. You can do this by emailing the staff coordinator noted below. 

Staff Coordinator: Ashley Scott, Waste Management Program, ashley.scott@dnr.mo.gov, 573-526-3900
