What We Do


Recycling provides an example of the collaboration involved in successful and sustainable material management. Households and businesses do their part to separate recyclable materials from their trash. We do our part to collect, sort, and process them into high-quality raw materials for manufacturers to use in new products. We also serve as public advocates for the advancement of materials manufacturing and recovery. Recycling works best when we all play our parts well.

Community Impact

The City of Worcester, Massachusetts has been dedicated to improving recycling quality by reducing contamination and, together with Casella, deployed dozens of measures to improve recycling habits, including the incorporation of new bins, educational materials, curbside audits, bin tagging, and community events, resulting in an almost 50 percent reduction in contamination. 

Investing in Innovation

Over the last 13 years, Casella’s Charlestown, MA Material Recovery Facility (MRF), the fourth largest recycling facility in the country, has processed over two million tons of recycling for many of the communities in eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire. In 2009, the facility unveiled state-of-the-art single stream recycling equipment, and now, this year, will be upgrading to the most technologically advanced sorting system available, as part of a six-month retrofit process. This exciting project will conclude in July 2023 and further demonstrate Casella’s commitment to being an innovative industry leader in recycling.

Sustainable Innovation

In June 2023, Casella officially opened the doors of its newly renovated Charlestown, Massachusetts material recovery facility (MRF), the largest on the East Coast and one of the largest in the world. The facility upgrade is complete with state-of-the-art equipment aimed to help increase throughput, improve end-product quality, and enhance safety, resulting in the ability to process up to 240,000 tons of material and provide best-in-class operations for our customers.
