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.
From our first recycling center in Vermont in 1977 to our current infrastructure of seven recycling facilities, 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.
Casella's Commitment to Recycling
Casella commits that 100% of non-contaminated recyclables that it receives and processes are sold to end markets to be made into new products or put to beneficial use. Casella is doing its part by investing in processing and finding new markets. Now citizens must do their part by learning to Recycle Better™.
Casella's Pledge on Plastic Recycling
Concerns about plastic in the environment are at the top of everyone’s mind and constantly in our news cycle. Casella is a committed partner in the effort to solve this monumental problem. We pledge that all plastics collected on our residential recycling routes and processed in our Zero-Sort recycling facilities will not be shipped to locations outside of North America. We are dedicated to establishing new, responsible domestic partners to identify end-markets and find a higher and better use for our materials.
