BOISE — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will hold a public informational meeting on a variance from a hazardous waste treatment storage or disposal facility permit for P. Kay Metal Lewiston, LLC.
A public hearing on the variance renewal will be held on January 20, 2021, at 5:30 p.m. PST at the Lewiston Community Center, located at1424 Main Street in Lewiston, Idaho. DEQ staff will be available to answer questions before the meeting starting at 5:00 p.m. PST.
Remote attendance is encouraged and the public can provide comments via telephone and video conference. To sign up for remote attendance via telephone and video conferencing, contact Daryl Sawyer by January 14, 2021.
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 variance and fact sheet are available at DEQ’s offices in Boise (1410 N. Hilton) and Lewiston (1118 F. St.) and on DEQ’s website.
