Lancaster County officials are making preparations for a new Indian Land convenience site in anticipation of the current location's pending closure.
The current Indian Land convenience site at 401 Jim WIlson Road has been under lease to the county for several years.
County administrator Steve Willis said the property's new owner, Lennar Homes, notified the county about a year ago that the site would have to be moved.
The company intends to use the property as part of it's Carolina Reserve residential project, though Willis said the company still has not given the count a deadline for moving.
"We're hoping for another six to eight months, but we have not heard back from the company," Willis said. "We are working on contingency plans if they say we gotta go, but that would just be temporary."
Willis said the county is currently searching for a new, permanent location for the site. Among the locations the county is considering, Willis said, is a site on Collins Road.
The Indian Land convenience site is one of 13 free trash drop off locations operated by Lancaster County Public Works, the vast majority of which are on property that is either leased or loaned.
