Recycling provides an example of the collaboration involved in successful and sustainable material management. Households and businesses do their part to separate recyclable materials from their trash. We do our part to collect, sort, and process them into high-quality raw materials for manufacturers to use in new products. We also serve as public advocates for the advancement of materials manufacturing and recovery. Recycling works best when we all play our parts well.

Partnering to Recycle Better™

Earlier this year, Casella’s Auburn Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and hauling division partnered with the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce and the City of Worcester’s Department of Public Works & Parks to reduce residents’ recycling contamination. After extensive research supported by an intern from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Casella chose select neighborhoods surrounding University Park to conduct a recycling bin tagging program. The group tagged hundreds of contaminated bins and had the opportunity to speak to residents about recycling education.

Investing in Innovation

Over the last 13 years, Casella’s Charlestown, MA Material Recovery Facility (MRF), the fourth largest recycling facility in the country, has processed over two million tons of recycling for many of the communities in eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire. In 2009, the facility unveiled state-of-the-art single stream recycling equipment, and now, this year, will be upgrading to the most technologically advanced sorting system available, as part of a six-month retrofit process. This exciting project will conclude in July 2023 and further demonstrate Casella’s commitment to being an innovative industry leader in recycling.
