DEQ to host public informational meeting on P. Kay Metal variance

LEWISTON – 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 12, 2022, in the Kokanee Room at the Lewiston Community Center, at 1424 Main St, Lewiston. Staff will be available to answer questions at 5:00 PST pm and the hearing will begin at 5:30 pm PST. In support of the effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19, persons wanting to provide comments may attend via telephone and video conferencing. Remote attendance is encouraged. To sign up for remote attendance via telephone and video conferencing, contact Daryl Sawyer by January 10, 2022.

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.

For technical assistance on questions concerning this variance, contact Daryl Sawyer at (208) 373-0547 or
