P&W Waste Oil Services pleaded guilty Monday, July 15, in federal court to unlawful handling of a toxic substance at a facility in Leland.

The facility at 10518 Royster Road NE is one-tenth of a mile east of the Cape Fear River and a U.S. Fish and Wildlife recognized wetland.

The resulting contamination was so widespread that the Leland facility has been declared a Superfund site. Superfund is a federal environmental program established to clean up uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
