Missouri officials ease waste disposal regulations following recent storms

After last week’s tornadoes, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources will temporarily ease its disposal regulations to aid cleanup efforts. According to an article in the News-Leader, Gov. Matt Blunt issued the executive order that will ease the regulations for 90 days and enable landfills to accept materials that are normally prohibited from the sites. Although items such as household appliances and junk vehicles can be recycled, officials are allowing these materials to be sent to the landfills.
