MCE has partnered with Just Moms STL to create the STL Toxic Waste Alliance. We believe it is every person’s right to know the communities in which they live, work, worship, or play are safe and free from hazardous wastes. This alliance works to educate and activate people in the St. Louis area around toxic waste contamination in their communities.

Through outreach and training sessions, the alliance aims to inform residents about the contaminants in their neighborhood and ultimately empower citizens to advocate for clean-up and public health protections. We will also work to advance life-saving policies that protect future generations from further harm. The Alliance’s current areas of focus are the Bridgeton West Lake Landfill, Coldwater Creek, and Maline Creek. However, we are regularly receiving reports of other locations of concern, and we will investigate those sites and provide resources about them as we are able.
