Casella Waste Systems Inc. significantly cut its net loss for its first quarter, with higher revenue.

For its fiscal quarter ended July 31, Rutland, Vt.-based Casella Waste reported a net loss of $163,000, or 0 cents per share, compared with $8.38 million, or 31 cents per share, in the year-ago period.

Revenue for the company climbed 9.3 percent to $128.6 million compared with $117.6 million, Casella Waste said in a news release.

"We had a solid first quarter, with results primarily driven by continued execution in key areas of management focus – sourcing incremental landfill volumes; improving collection route profitability; and completing the multi-year Eastern region strategy," said John Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste.

The company revised its fiscal 2014 guidance upward. It now expects revenues for the year of between $470 million and $480 million, an increase from the previous range of $465 million to $475 million.
