JEFFERSON CITY, MO, FEB. 23, 2024 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Waste Management Program has issued a construction permit to Doty Real Estate, LLC, to construct the Doty Transfer Station solid waste processing facility in Lawrence County.

The facility will transfer non-hazardous solid waste from collection vehicles to long-haul carriers for transport to permitted solid waste disposal facilities. The site is to be located at the 900 block of Industrial Drive, approximately 0.37 mile northeast of Hwy. 39 in Aurora, Lawrence County.

The department reviews all construction permit 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. The department must issue an operating permit before the facility can accept waste.
