Overview of MMSWMD
The Mid-Missouri Solid Waste Management District was established in 1991 and is one of twenty districts throughout the state created to assist the public, private, individual, and non-profit sectors in reducing waste. Waste reduction is accomplished through grants, sponsorships, waste audits, collection events, education, and research. MMSWMD includes Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Cooper, Cole, Howard, Moniteau, and Osage counties.
The twenty solid waste management districts were created by Senate Bill 530 passed in 1990. The districts are funded by a tipping fee currently set at $2.11 per ton of refuse brought to a landfill in Missouri, or to a transfer station in Missouri if the eventual destination is a landfill out of state. The fee at construction and demolition landfills is $1.41. The fee is distributed to districts using a formula that is based on a the tipping fee revenues and population for that district. MMSWMD receives about $400,000 per year: half of which MMSWMD uses for operations and implementation of our District Plan.
