Description The B&L Woodwaste landfill (Tacoma) received woodwaste from the mid 1970s until early 1980s. The waste, which came from log sort yards in Commencement Bay was contaminated with soil and Asarco slag. The Asarco slag (byproduct of smelting operations) leached arsenic into the soils and groundwater. This FAQ describes the phase 2 cleanup activities at the site.
