PITTSBURGH PSC Metals Inc. is moving ahead with plans to open a new scrapyard in northwestern Pennsylvania after being granted the necessary approval.
The yard will expand the footprint of the Mayfield Heights, Ohio-based division of Icahn Enterprises LP, whose present reach in Pennsylvania goes as far east as Slippery Rock.
The bureau council in Sugarcreek in Venango County, Pa., has approved a conditional use permit for PSC Metals to establish a facility in the town of Reno. The metals recycler will now submit building plans and will be required to erect a fence, according to a borough employee.
The three-acre property, formerly occupied by a well-drilling service, includes a 13,660-square-foot building with loading docks.
PSC Metals declined to comment.
