JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JULY 23, 2009 -- The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has issued a construction permit to G. T. Management LLC, to construct the Roll Off Services Inc.

The transfer station will be used to transfer municipal solid waste from collection vehicles to long haul carriers for transport to permitted disposal facilities. The facility is located at 4700 NW 7th St., west of South Ford Lane in Joplin and west of Joplin city limits.
