Casella Waste Gets Capacity Expansion OK at Vermont Landfill

Landfill Workers Face Challenges During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Casella Waste Systems Inc. said a Vermont agency has nearly doubled the potential capacity for its Coventry, Vt., landfill.

The Rutland, Vt.-based company said in a news release that the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources increased the maximum annual permit limit at Casella’s Coventry landfill to 600,000 tons annually from 370,000 tons, and raised the maximum daily waste acceptance rate to 5,000 tons per day from 2,500 tons.

"We are very excited to receive this important annual permit increase at our Coventry landfill," said John Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste. "Our Coventry landfill has helped to serve the solid waste disposal needs for Vermonters over the past 20 years, and with this latest expansion, we are well positioned to continue to meet these needs into the future."
