The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will open its first public drop-off facility to accept household hazardous wastes, flood-damaged electrical goods and major appliances on Thursday morning, January 7, at Eureka, Mo.

The drop-off facility is located on Missouri Department of Transportation property adjacent to the Route 66 State Park, on the north side of Interstate 44 at Exit 266 in Eureka. EPA Region 7 and its contractors will operate the facility from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, including weekends. EPA anticipates adding additional collection locations soon to further help residents of Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles and St. Louis counties recover from the recent flooding.

EPA contractors will also be picking up at curbside the same three categories of flood debris – household hazardous wastes, electrical goods and major appliances – in residential areas of Franklin, Jefferson, St. Charles and St. Louis counties. EPA is working with its contractors to begin the curbside collections by the end of this week.
