The plastic tubs are burial vaults made by Vantage products in Covington, GA. Apparently they leased the land to store them there.
Vantage products vaults
Though what boggles my mind is that today's corporate culture is wrapped up in "Just in Time" manufacturing, why whould they make all these and stockpile them unless they are bought and paid for? It doesn't make sense to have all that money wrapped up in product, sitting in a field waiting unless someone already paid for them.
Catch my meaning?
BTW someone that lives in the area should go to the county courthouse there and verify what entity or person is in control of that land. If you point it out on a plat map they have to tell you who owns/controls/leases it.

Interesting info and pics. Thanks a lot for posting. The pictures of the coffins creep me the hell out!! Just stacks and stacks and rows and rows of those things. I admit I don't know much about this, what is the official explanation of what those are for? Has the gov given any explanation? Its quite ominous looking.
Anyways thanks again for posting.
