Western Lead Products Co.

The former Western Lead Products Company site (Site), also known as the Western Zinc Products Company is located at 4530 East Pacific Way in Commerce, CA. The Site is roughly 295’ x 65’, in an industrial area and within the Preliminary Investigation Area (PIA) for DTSC’s Exide Residential Cleanup site in Vernon. Most of the properties in this part of the PIA were sampled by DTSC and many were prioritized for cleanup as part of DTSC’s interim removal action at the Exide Residential Cleanup Site. Sources confirm the former Western Lead Products Company produced lead oxide at the Site for sale to battery manufacturers.

This Site and surrounding areas are being evaluated by DTSC’s LABRIC Program.  More information regarding this site can be found in the EnviroStor Profile Report.
