Department Hosts Public Hearing on Proposed Transfer Station in St. L County

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources will conduct a public hearing at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18, in the Oakville High School gymnasium, 5557 Milburn Road, St. Louis.

The department has received an application from FW Disposal South LLC to construct a transfer station at 5219 Baumgartner Road in St. Louis County. The general legal description of the site is part of US Survey, Township 43 North, Range 6 East, Latitude 3846'351 " N, Longitude 9035'016 " W in St Louis County.

The proposed transfer station will be used to receive non-hazardous solid municipal waste and will transfer the waste from small trucks onto larger vehicles that would transfer the waste to a permitted facility.

The department's Solid Waste Management Program reviews all applications submitted by cities, counties and private owners to ensure solid waste disposal areas are properly designed and constructed. Other technical factors that protect Missouri's environment are also examined.

Citizens can review a copy of the proposed permit application at the Cliff Cave Branch Public Library, 5430 Telegraph Road, St. Louis. A copy is also available upon request at the department's Solid Waste Management Program at 1730 E. Elm St. in Jefferson City. To request a file review, citizens must first call (573) 751-3043 or fax a request to Rhonda Loveall, custodian of records, at (573) 522-3344.
