Environmental consultant at Peninsula Plywood's abandoned manufacturing plant begins assessing cleanup needed to demolish site, says Port of Port Angeles executive

LOS ANGELES , March 28, 2012 () – According to Port of Port Angeles Executive Director Jeff Robb, an environmental consultant was at Peninsula Plywood's abandoned manufacturing plant earlier this week to begin assessing the cleanup needed to demolish the industrial site, the Peninsula Daily News reported March 27.

Robb said the land should be made available for marine trades but noted that the economic climate would prevent the port from actively marketing the parcel until the economy rebounds.

That said, according to Port Commission President John Calhoun, the port is anxious to clean up the property.

Peninsula Plywood closed in Nov. 2011, leaving more than US$1 million in unpaid bills to several public agencies and about 130 people out of work, the newspaper noted.
