A Pennsylvania-based plating solutions company has agreed to pay the US Environmental Protection Agency more than $33,000 to settle allegations of improperly storing hazardous waste.

During an inspection of Hard Chrome Specialists, the EPA found Resource Conservation and Recovery Act violations involving hazardous waste stored at the York facility, including waste chromium, cadmium, lead and electroless nickel waste.

The alleged violations included: failure to make hazardous waste determinations, failure to properly manage containers of hazardous waste, failure to inspect a hazardous waste storage tank, and failure to update the facility contingency plan.

The settlement penalty reflects the company’s compliance efforts, and its cooperation with EPA in the resolution of this matter. As part of the settlement, Hard Chrome has neither admitted nor denied liability for the alleged violations, but has certified its compliance with applicable RCRA requirements.
