Since 1992, the department has provided yearly grant funding to Missouri's 20 solid waste management districts to fund their operations and community-based waste reduction, reuse, composting and recycling projects. This funding is a portion of the revenues generated by the solid waste tonnage fee and deposited into the Solid Waste Management Fund. For information about the amount of waste (tonnage) reported and fees collected by the solid waste facilities, visit Solid Waste Tonnage Reporting and Fees. For more information about the tonnage fee, visit Solid Waste Tonnage Fees and Allocations.

Of the fees deposited into the Solid Waste Management Fund, the department allocates $800,000 per year to the Environmental Improvement and Energy Resources Authority and up to $200,000 each year for grants to the solid waste management districts receiving a reduction in funds due to the 2004 allocation formula change. The remaining revenues deposited into the fund are then allocated every 3 months, with 61% of the revenues provided to the solid waste management districts. The department divides the funds between the solid waste management districts based on the following criteria:

  • 40%  based on the population of each district in the latest 10-year census
  • 60% based on the amount of revenue generated within each district, based on the previous year's data

The districts award part of these funds as grants to local governments, small and large businesses, schools, sheltered workshops and individuals to support their activities to remove materials from the waste stream and return them for beneficial reuse. For more information about district grants, visit Solid Waste Management District Grants.
