Casella, GreenerU Partner to Promote Recycling at Colleges

Casella Waste Systems Inc. and GreenerU Inc., which promotes environmental programs at colleges, have formed a recycling and waste reduction partnership.

The Rutland, Vt.-based Casella said in a news release that the two companies will offer resource renewal and conservation solutions to reduce utility and operating costs for universities as well as lower the schools' greenhouse gas emissions.

Under the partnership agreement, Casella has made an investment into the Waltham, Mass.-based GreenerU's Series A round of financing.

"We look forward to collaborating with GreenerU as a leader in working with colleges and universities on sustainability and energy solutions," said John Casella, chairman and CEO of the waste and recycling company. "We are impressed by GreenerU's rapid expansion in New England and their vision for the future of the company. We believe that our partnership with GreenerU will prove beneficial to both existing and new college clients within our Northeast marketplace."
