Asarco Omaha NE smelter shut down in 1997 - did it also burn the illegal secret hazardous wastes?

Asarco's Omaha NE smelter shut down in 1997 - did it also burn the illegal secret hazardous wastes that Asarco's whistleblower let us know were handled by Asarco-ENCYCLE (and then sent to smelters in E. Helena MT and El Paso TX) for the years throughout the 1990's??   Will we ever know? (Rep. Reyes, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee said that ASARCO paid millions of dollars on the condition that the details of what it had done would never become public (El Paso Times online article 2006))
