Description of Services:The site is a Missouri-certified resource recovery facility. Lead acid storage batteries and other lead-bearing raw materials are processed into new metallic lead ingot. Most lead bearing raw materials are defined as product intermediates rather than hazardous waste under the beneficial use, reuse, and recycling clause of 40 CFR 261, however indigenous waste, characteristic lead bearing materials, a spent lead acid battery components are defined as hazardous waste. The facility has not received any hazardous waste from internal or external sources since July 3, 2003. Prior to the above mentioned date, less than 0.5% of the total raw materials recycled annually were classified as hazardous waste as defined by Federal and State regulations. They were received in sealed containers and stored in a permitted container storage area of the containment building. Records of receipt and disposal were maintained as part of the operating record. Exide Technologies customers use the lead ingot primarily in lead acid storage batteries, weights, ammunition, bearings, chemicals and sound and radiation shielding.

Facility process equipment and operations include a battery breaking area, a blast furnace, four pot furnaces, a baghouse, a sulfur dioxide scrubber, and a wastewater treatment plant. Spent batteries are ordinarily obtained from Exide battery distribution centers. The batteries are shipped to the facility on tractor/trailers, loaded on pallets and protected with plastic shrink-wrap.
