Description The B& LWoodwaste site was a landfill that received woodwaste from the mid 1970s until the early 1980s. The waste, which came from log sort yards in Commencement Bay, consisted of woodwaste,soil, and Asarco slag. The Asarco slag (a byproduct of smelting operations) leached arsenic into the woodwaste and soils, and groundwater at the site.
