ADP Waste LLC submitted a construction permit application to build a proposed solid waste processing facility in Shannon County, Missouri. The department invites the public to review and offer written comments on the permit application until Dec. 2, 2022.
The public can review the permit application packet at the Winona Public Library, 106 Ash St., Winona, MO 65588. Written comments may be submitted by mail to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Water Management Program, PO Box 176, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176.
The proposed site for the facility, Ozarks Waste Solutions Solid Waste Transfer Station, is 8777 Cherry St., Winona, Missouri, approximately 1.4 miles north of Highway 60 and 0.35 miles west on Highway 19. The proposed facility would operate as a solid waste transfer station, processing up to 20 tons of municipal solid waste per day. Waste would be transferred from collection vehicles to long-haul carries for transport to permitted facilities. The facility would not be open to the public.
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 are also examined. If the permit application meets all statutory and regulatory requirements and the local governmental authority confirms the proposed facility meets all local requirements, the department must issue a permit. The department does not choose locations for proposed facilities and does not have the authority to override the local governmental authority’s decision regarding local requirements.
