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 closed in 2003 following a bankruptcy settlement.  The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has oversight of the day-to-day post-closure operations at the site.

The 2003 bankruptcy settlement required the appointment of a Trustee to maintain the former hazardous waste landfill in an environmentally protective manner and in accordance with applicable law.  Kestrel Horizons, LLC (Kestrel) acted as Trustee from 2003 to 2015.  In accordance with the provisions of the Pinewood Site Custodial Trust Agreement, DHEC appointed PIA, Inc. as interim administrator in November 2015.
