Useful Tips for Demolition in Missouri
Notify the MDNR of your intent to demolish.
You must notify the Missouri Department of Natural Resources – Air Pollution Control Program of your intent to demolish a structure. If asbestos is present, you must indicate that as well, along with proper disposal plans.
Fill out this form and mail to:
Missouri Department of Natural Resources
P.O. Box 176

Consider deconstructing before demolishing.
Deconstruction is a great way to keep some money in your pocket and useable materials out of the landfills. Before demolishing your home or other structure to the ground, consider dismantling any salvageable materials first.
This will minimize the debris and save you money. It could also help your neighbors if you donate the salvageable items to a local charity, like Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores.
Hire the right contractor for your project.
When it comes to demolition projects, hiring the right contractor for your specific needs is imperative to successful project completion. If you want your demo done right, do your research.
Generally speaking, the contractor you hire should be experienced in the work and licensed and insured to handle the job.
In some states, you only need a license if the total project cost is greater than a certain dollar amount, and some states simply require contractors to be registered.
If your state requires a license, always make sure the contractor you hire has the proper licensing. Our state-by-state contractor license guide is an excellent tool. You can learn your state’s licensing laws and make sure a specific contractor's license is up-to-date.
If a contractor's license number is not listed on their website or social media, quote sheets or contracts should show the contractor’s license number on the first page. If you don’t see it, this is a red flag. (Find out the other red flags!)
Never be afraid to ask a contractor for their license number, and make sure you understand the importance of having a bonded and insured contractor, too.

Remember to ask your contractor about debris disposal.
Although demolition contractors will often handle debris disposal, not all of them do. So when shopping around for contractors, this should be something you ask them. One contractor may include the cost of hauling in their quote, while another may not. If they don’t, this is an additional expense you will have to consider.
In that state of Missouri, illegal dumping of construction and demolition (C&D) waste is a Class D felony. If convicted, you could be fined up to $20,000, and if you dispose of the waste on your own property and it exceeds 2,000 lbs., it’s considered a Class C misdemeanor. This is why proper disposal is so important.
Renting a dumpster is the most convenient way to manage debris if your demolition contractor isn’t responsible for it. Check out Hometown Dumpster Rental to see company profiles, read customer reviews, and request quotes from as many providers as you’d like.
