JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JAN. 24, 2024 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has issued a construction permit to Waste Corporation of Missouri, LLC for the Black Oak Recycling and Disposal Facility in Wright County.

The site is an expansion of the existing facility, located at 5054 Highway HH, approximately 4 miles southeast of Hartville. The sanitary landfill will be used to dispose of municipal solid waste and other bulky waste, demolition and construction waste, soil, rock, concrete, tires and inert solids.
