DEQ to host public hearing on P. Kay Metal variance
Wednesday, December 18, 2019
LEWISTON — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host a public hearing on a variance from a hazardous waste treatment storage or disposal facility permit for P. Kay Metal Lewiston, LLC.
The hearing will be held on January 22, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. PST at the Lewiston City Library, Community Room, 411 D St., Lewiston. Staff will be available to answer questions at 5:00 p.m. PST.
P. Kay Metal is a lead recycling operation that produces lead and lead alloys in bar and wire form for a variety of uses. The variance would allow the facility to receive shipments of lead-bearing hazardous secondary materials (HSM) for reclamation from states that use a uniform hazardous waste manifest as a shipping document without obtaining a hazardous waste permit. The variance does not authorize receipt of hazardous waste, only HSM.
The proposed variance and public notice are available for review at DEQ's State Office (1410 N. Hilton St.), Lewiston Regional Office (1118 F. St.) and on DEQ’s website (download at right).
