Department issues construction permit for solid waste processing facility in Butler County

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, NOV. 14, 2018 - The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has issued a construction permit to Chad and Sara Henson to construct the Henson Transfer Station in Butler County.

The solid waste processing facility will transfer municipal solid waste from collection vehicles to long-haul carriers for transport to permitted disposal facilities.

The Henson Transfer Station will be located at 15 Industrial Park Road, approximately two miles east of U.S. Highway 67 off County Road 302, near Poplar Bluff in Butler County.

The Department of Natural Resources reviews all applications submitted by cities, counties and private owners to ensure that solid waste disposal areas are properly designed and constructed. Other technical factors that protect Missouri's environment are also examined. Prior to accepting waste at the facility, an operating permit must be issued.

Box 176, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176, or by contacting Darrell G. Hartley, P.E., at 1-800-361-4827 or 573-751-5401.
