Pasco Landfill Site

Public Comment Period

Sept. 8, 2020 - Sept. 22, 2020, 11:59 p.m.

You can comment on the plan to dispose of waste excavated from Zone A in off-site facilities in Oregon and Idaho.

We provided information last fall about our Cleanup Action Plan and associated legal documentation for the Pasco Landfill. These documents described plans to dispose of Zone A drums and associated dangerous and hazardous wastes in one or more off-site disposal facilities. We are now sharing details about which waste disposal facilities can accept the Zone A wastes. The parties responsible for Pasco Landfill Zone A cleanup work have identified two facilities in Oregon and Idaho that are permitted to accept and dispose of dangerous and hazardous wastes.

Some Zone A wastes are Corrective Action Management Unit (CAMU) eligible under Washington’s Dangerous Waste Regulations. The parties responsible for cleanup have prepared documentation supporting their petition to dispose of certain Zone A wastes off-site as CAMU-eligible. This documentation is an attachment to the Zone A Removal Action Engineering Design Report: Appendix C – Waste Handling, Characterization and Disposal Plan. Ecology determined the Appendix C Waste Plan is adequate and we are seeking public input on it.
