The concept of sustainability is not new to Casella. For over thirty years the foundation of our business has been built on managing and conserving environmental resources for our customers and communities in a viable economic model. In 1977, we built and opened the first recycling center in Vermont, an early implementation of an environmentally and socially sustainable component to our overall business model.
Today, we are leading the solid waste industry with an innovative business strategy that seeks to create sustainable value beyond the traditional disposal model. We view waste as a resource for producing renewable energy and a raw material for manufacturing new products.
