Pesticide Collection in Troy
Boonslick Regional Planning Commission is the administrator for the East Central Missouri Solid Waste Management District-Region I. The district serves Franklin, Lincoln, Montgomery, and Warren counties. BRPC worked with staff from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to set up a free pesticide collection for farmers and households. It was held Saturday, April 6 at Mordt Tractor in Troy.
DNR has shared that there were 62 participants at the event, which is the second highest number of participants since the collection program began in 2012. The 62 participants dropped off approximately 26,000 pounds of waste pesticide.
BRPC will continue working with DNR in efforts to bring additional collections to the area next year.

Recycling Presentation in Franklin County
Boonslick Regional Planning Commission serves as administrator for the East Central Missouri Solid Waste Management District-Region I, which includes Franklin, Lincoln, Montgomery and Warren counties. On April 9, staff member Chuck Eichmeyer visited Meramec Valley RIII Early Childhood Center in Pacific, Missouri to give a presentation about recycling. Approximately 75 students between the ages of 3 to 5 were in attendance.
The Meramec Valley RIII Early Childhood Center submitted a scrap tire material grant application to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources last year. The Region I District wrote a letter of support for the school’s project, which was to install a rubberized pour-in-place surface on the playground. The project was funded, and not only represents an excellent use for scrap tires, but also demonstrates the benefits of recycling for the students.
