Please remember to log any Odors/Fumes you may encounter to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources at http://www.dnr.mo.gov/concern.htm. It is important to document these odors. If you know of family or friends who do not have access to a computer, please give them the MO-DNR website information to link into when they do have access or they can call, fax or email their report.
You may notify the Solid Waste Management Program with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, in any of the following ways to file an odor concern:
Phone – 800-361-4827 or 573-751-5401 and state you need to file a Bridgeton Landfill odor concern.
These phone numbers are available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m.
Fax – 573-526-3902 Attn. Bridgeton Landfill odor concern.
Email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: In case of an emergency, you should contact your local fire protection district using the 911 system.
Even if you forget and think it is too late to report an odor;even a week or two weeks or a month after the event, it is not.
We encourage everyone who smells the landfill to PLEASE take the time to fill out the report or call, fax or email the MO-DNR! This is the only way that the Attorney General will be able to hold Republic accountable and force them to pay the daily fine determined in the lawsuit. As of right now there were only around three reports reported to DNR for the ENTIRE month of November!
If you filled out an odor report for Missouri DNR at anytime this past November, can you PLEASE leave a comment under this post? You don’t have to know the date or time or anything like that…we are just starting a process to keep track and or possibly map the odor reports, ourselves for tracking our numbers with the numbers showing as reported by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources!
Also, if you received an automated response from DNR about the report can you please state that.
We also have an Link on the Front Page to report the odors to not only the Missouri Department of Resources, but also to Republic and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment [who will forward your report to MO-DNR]. You can report to just the MO-DNR or to all three.
