Casella Waste Renames Organics Recycling Business

Casella Waste Systems Inc. has changed the name of its New England Organics business to Casella Organics.

The Rutland, Vt.-based Casella said in a news release the move reflects the company’s commitment to a growing demand for organics waste and recycling solutions.

"We believe the organics portion of the waste stream represents the next big mainstream resource renewal and recycling opportunity," said John Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste.

Casella Organics employs more than 50 and has offices in Presque Isle, Unity and Portland, Maine; Concord, N.H.; and Clifton Park, N.Y.

In all, the group manages nearly 700,000 tons of material annually.

Casella bought the business in 2000 and called it New England Organics. The business offers a full range of organics solutions to almost 1,000 municipal, industrial and institutional generators of ash, biosolids, compost, paper making byproducts, and other organic and mineral residuals.
