The former Laidlaw Pinewood site is located on Camp MacBoykin Road (SC County Road 51) in a rural area of Sumter County between Summerton and Pinewood. The site stopped receiving waste in 2000 and closed in 2003 following a bankruptcy settlement. The bankruptcy settlement appointed Kestrel Horizons, LLC (Kestrel) as Trustee for the Pinewood site.
Kestrel is responsible for day-to-day operations at the site. The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) regulates the site in accordance with the South Carolina Hazardous Waste Management Regulations.
