PUBLIC NOTICE
For Proposed Approval of Commercial Storage, Processing and Disposal of PCBs
Chemical Waste Management, Inc.
36964 Alabama Highway 17
Sumter County, Emelle, Alabama 35459
ALD 000622464
Chemical Waste Management, Inc. (CWM) has applied to the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency for renewal of their Approval for Commercial Storage, Processing and Landfill Disposal of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and PCB Items under Section 6(e)(1) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), 15 U.S.C. 2605(E) and 40 CFR § 761.65 (d). The PCB regulatory program is not delegable to states and the management and enforcement of the program is currently under the exclusive authority of the EPA.
CWM owns and operates a commercial hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facility in Emelle, Alabama. CWM receives and manages a broad range of Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous wastes, TSCA regulated PCBs and PCB Items and non-hazardous/non-TSCA industrial wastes. CWM receives PCB electrical equipment and other PCB articles, which may be moved to the on-site landfill, the container storage units or storage tanks for temporary storage, or a treatment unit for processing prior to landfill disposal. PCB transformers and articles that arrive at the Facility are drained and flushed prior to on-site landfill disposal.
CWM operates commercial storage, processing and disposal areas in accordance with 40 CFR §§ 761.65(d) and 761.75(c) for the PCB wastes. The EPA has reviewed CWM’s renewal application for the commercial storage, processing and disposal of PCB waste and is providing the proposed TSCA PCB Approval for public comment. The proposed TSCA PCB Approval includes conditions for managing PCB waste, facility closure procedures and financial assurance requirements to cover facility closure cost for the PCB waste and storage areas. The EPA has determined that CWM’s application meets the requirements set forth in the regulations and that operation of the facility in accordance with the requirements of the TSCA PCB Approval will not pose an unreasonable risk of injury to human health or the environment.
Persons wishing to comment on the EPA’s decision to issue the proposed TSCA PCB Approval must submit comments by email to Peter Johnson at johnson.peter@epa.gov or phone at 404-562-8459 during the public comment period, beginning August 13, 2020 and ending September 12, 2020. The EPA will finalize its decision after review of and response to received comments.
The proposed draft TSCA PCB Approval is available online at the EPA’s public notice website at www.epa.gov/aboutepa/about-epa-region-4-southeast. Hard copies of the proposed TSCA PCB Approval, Fact Sheet, and supporting documents are available for review at Emelle Town Hall. Due to COVID-19, Emelle Town Hall’s hours are irregular; therefore, please call (205-499-0025) or email (roywillingham@bellsouth.net) Roy Willingham, Mayor of Emelle, to schedule a time to view the documents at the following location:
