1. How techno savvy are you? The Missouri Department of Natural Resources offers businesses the opportunity to submit both the facility and generator hazardous waste summary reports online. This includes the quarterly reporting required for Large Quantity Generators. It is a fast, safe way to do business. Visit www.dnr.mo.gov/forms/780-1097.pdf and don't forget to sign up for the department's electronic reporting reminder and updates available at www.dnr.mo.gov/env/hwp/hwgr-reporting.htm. To fill out the summary report forms electronically you will need a personal identification number assigned to your business. If you do not have one, contact David Green at 800-361-4827 or 573-751-3176.

2. Antifreeze update. In the December 5, 2005 listserv we talked about properly managing your antifreeze and linked you to the department's Antifreeze Waste Management Guide. For those of you who didn't get a chance to read it, the technical bulletin states that non-hazardous waste antifreeze can be disposed of in a Publicly Owned Wastewater Treatment (POTW) Facility if you check with it prior to disposing of the waste. That is true, however, many cities forbid disposing of waste antifreeze in this manner so it should be emphasized that you must check with your POTW. We have recently learned that St. Joseph, Springfield, Kansas City and Jefferson City do not allow disposal of antifreeze down the drain.

Happy New Year!
