The property owner’s family purchased the land in 1985 and lived and ran a business on the five acre property. They operated a plumbing company using the land for material storage as well as leasing a portion of the land to a construction company to store heavy machinery.  In 2009, the property owner leased a portion of the land to another individual who used the land as primarily electronics recycling facility, but had taken other hazardous waste with the intentions of recycling them under the business name E-Cycle NW. The land is no longer being leased for such activity. The business became the primary electronic waste recycling location for the region. Electronics and other recyclable goods were collected and stored by E-Cycle NW. However, when the business closed in 2017, a stockpile of the materials and electronics was abandoned on the Site by the business.

On July 25, 2019, Washington Department of Ecology (WDOE) sent a formal written request letter to the EPA for assistance with the removal of the abandoned hazardous waste located on site of the former business E-Cycle NW.
