Waste is an expensive and sometimes unavoidable result of human activity. It is produced in our homes, offices and factories. How waste is managed and disposed affects the air, water and land that humans, plants and animals rely on to live. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is responsible for regulating how specific solid and hazardous wastes are managed in Missouri. The main goal of waste management is to reduce the amount of waste produced and properly manage the rest. The department works with individuals, businesses, industry, governments and schools to make sure they know how to safely collect, handle and dispose of their waste. If waste is released to the environment, once notified, the department performs environmental investigations and oversees any cleanup activities, if determined necessary. Learn more about specific Missouri sites and facilities we regulate.
