Petition to de-list dangerous waste from the facility

Petition and supporting documents available for review and comment

September 12, 2018 - October 12, 2018

  Sandvik Special Metals LLC, a metal tube manufacturing facility in Kennewick, submitted a petition to Ecology and 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 learn more by viewing the Federal Register.

You can comment online about Sandvik's petition and Ecology’s tentative decision to approve it. We will consider and respond to all comments before approving the de-listing petition.
