Presentation Description:

We live in a closed-loop environment. Everything is connected. An innovative approach to managing today’s waste includes the realization that renewing the life-cycle of the products we consume is a critical step in reducing waste. The concept of managing solid waste means giving trash new purpose and a new life. It’s about turning waste into a resource.

Land is at a premium, energy prices are soaring, and environmental impact has become a concern shared by all. Making more with less. Every pound we recycle out of the waste stream is one less pound we have to mine, smelt or mill. One less pound we have to bury or burn. Cans become more cans. Paper becomes insulation. Steel finds its way back into cars. All of which uses less energy, preserves our natural resources and reduces the waste we generate.

From our first recycling center in Vermont in 1977, to our current platform of recycling facilities serving 7 states, Casella has pioneered the recycling processing field. Today, Casella is leading the industry with investments in recycling infrastructure, research and development driving the next generation of recycling technologies, and innovative recycling programs that are making recycling easier for our customers.
