Background/ History

The Chemical Recovery Corp. site is located on about 0.19 acres at 6402 Stadium Drive in Kansas City, Missouri. The facility was originally built in 1911, and used as a fire station. In 1980, Reclamare Enterprises purchased the facility and began operating a reclaiming facility at the site. Reclamare changed its name to Chemical Recovery Corp. in 1988.

The Chemical Recovery facility is a closed hazardous waste storage facility. Aztec Laboratories, owned by Chemical Recovery, used the second floor of the building to operate a laboratory for testing soil and water samples. Chemical Recovery used the first floor of the building to house a hazardous waste storage and reclaiming operation. The facility reclaimed metal finishing wastes and waste solvent mixes produced mainly by small quantity hazardous waste generators. These wastes included a variety of characteristic and listed hazardous wastes. Chemical Recovery stored the hazardous wastes in containers on the first floor until it was reclaimed. The hazardous waste container storage area was the only regulated hazardous waste management unit at the facility. Chemical Recovery operated the facility under the “interim status” portions of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Cleanup Summary

In 1989, the department denied the facility’s application for a hazardous waste permit and required Chemical Recovery to remove all existing hazardous waste inventory and close all areas used to store hazardous waste. The hazardous waste container storage area was closed by 1991. The facility was not subject to the permitting requirements of the Missouri Hazardous Waste Management Law or federal Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments to RCRA for long-term monitoring and maintenance activities (post-closure care) because Chemical Recovery “clean closed” the interim status hazardous waste management unit. The facility was subject to the corrective action requirements because Chemical Recovery completed the closure activities after the effective date of the federal Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments. 

Investigation results showed soil on the property was contaminated with benzo(a)anthracene, benzo(b)fluroanthene and ideno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene above screening levels for residential use; however, the amount of contamination was below screening levels for industrial use. The department determined no further corrective action was necessary, except to place specific activity and use limitations on the property. 

On May 13, 2015, following the opportunity for public review and comment, the department approved the proposed final remedy of no further corrective action with institutional controls. The institutional control would be an enforceable Environmental Covenant, which places certain activity and use limitations on the property. The department and Chemical Recovery executed an Environmental Covenant, restricting the facility property to non-residential use and prohibiting the use of shallow groundwater for drinking water. Chemical Recovery filed the covenant with the Jackson County Recorder of Deeds on May 29, 2015, and provided proof of the filing to the department. The department released the facility from regulation as an interim status hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facility subject to the corrective action requirements of the Missouri Hazardous Waste Management Law and regulations, effective June 26, 2015. However, the activity and use limitations contained in the Environmental Covenant continue to apply. Chemical Recovery is no longer in business. Aztec Laboratories continues to use the second floor of the building.
