The Missouri Hazardous Waste Management Commission (HWMC) holds at least four, usually six, regular public meetings each year, normally on the third Thursday of February, April, June, August, October and December. During these meetings, the commission regularly reserves time on the agenda for public comments or questions concerning hazardous waste issues. The commission may hold an Executive Session (closed meeting) before the General Session (open meeting) to discuss legal matters, causes of action or litigation as outlined in Section 610.021.1, RSMo.

All actions of the commission are taken at the open public meeting. If you have any questions regarding HWMC, please contact the commission secretary at 573-751-2747.

Special Notice:

Due to the lack of action items for consideration by the commission, the August 17 meeting will not be held. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be Oct. 19, 2017.

In January, Governor Greitens signed Executive Order 17-03, requiring executive agencies to review every regulation under its jurisdiction in the Code of State Regulations.

No Red TapeThe order also requires state agencies to solicit input from the public and take action to rescind or amend those regulations identified as needing action.

The goals of the Executive Order review process are to cut red tape, encourage innovation, entrepreneurship, and job growth, and remove needless, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome regulations.

The department is currently reviewing its regulations and is seeking feedback through its board and commission meetings through Dec. 15, 2017.

The Hazardous Waste Program (HWP) held an open forum to accept comments on the Hazardous Waste Laws, at the Oct. 19, 2017, meeting of the HWMC.

A complete calendar of board and commission meetings dates is available at

Comments will also be accepted online, by email or by mail through Dec. 15, 2017.

To learn more about the regulation review and view a complete list of the regulations, visit or call HWP at 573-751-3176.

A PowerPoint presentation outlining the goals of these efforts has been provided to the members of the HWMC.  A copy of this presentation is provided here:
