Casella is one of the largest landfill operators in the north eastern United States, safely managing the disposal of over 3 million tons of solid waste each year. Over the past 6 years, Casella has worked with local and state governments to design, permit, and build environmentally sound landfill disposal facilities to meet the region's ever increasing solid waste needs. We believe that it is important to provide our communities and our customers with in-market disposal options that eliminate the unnecessary environmental impacts of shipping waste to distant disposal sites.
Casella's network of transfer stations and landfill disposal sites are well positioned to service most major municipalities and communities across the region. Our sites are permitted to accept non-hazardous waste streams. Our customer service staff is available to help meet your transfer and disposal needs.
Sustainable Environmental and Economic Development
Casella has sought to differentiate ourselves in the solid waste market by linking recycling and other leading-edge resource management approaches to the solid waste disposal needs of municipalities.
Our SEED™ (Sustainable Environmental and Economic Development) program was conceived of and implemented as a framework to manage disposal capacity in a responsible manner in which the interests of all stakeholders are aligned. Through our investment of time and capital to build a sustainable infrastructure around our disposal projects we have shifted the value of these sites from merely disposal to platforms that include sustainable projects.
Today, our landfill gas collection systems are not merely designed to passively capture gas; these systems are designed to actively extract gas to power landfill gas-to-energy plants producing clean electricity and to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Within our model, landfill sites are environmental campuses where resources are extracted from all aspects of the waste stream.
