Petition to de-list hazardous waste at Sandvik Special Metals
We invite your comments on a facility’s petition to change how they manage some of their waste. Sandvik Special Metals LLC (Sandvik), a metal tube manufacturing facility in Kennewick, creates a type of waste that state and federal law considers hazardous. Sandvik has collected data showing that their waste, called wastewater treatment sludge or filter cake, does not contain enough harmful chemicals to be considered dangerous.
Earlier this year, Sandvik submitted a petition to Ecology and the EPA that would allow them to handle their waste as solid waste instead of hazardous waste. This means they would be allowed to dispose their filter cake waste in a solid waste landfill. This process is called de-listing.
You can comment on their petition and Ecology’s tentative decision to approve it. We will consider and respond to all comments before approving the delisting petition.
Ecology has tentatively decided to grant Sandvik’s formal petition.
All fields are optional unless otherwise indicated.
