If you are looking for programming for a PTO meeting or events in your school community, we offer presentations on solid waste issues intended for adult audiences. The environment provides an important service that protects human health; it receives our wastes.

The Saint Louis County Health Department is one of the agencies that regulate the landfills, material recovery facilities, and composting facilities in St. Louis County. In these presentations adult audiences learn about something not taught in school that affects their daily life. We will not address specific issues but provide a general overview of the proper management of solid waste.

Topics include:

  • Household Hazardous Waste
  • Modern landfills
  • Waste reduction/diversion
  • Composting /organic waste
