January Platinum Highlight: Casella

Casella Waste Systems just moved up to become  the BBA's newest platinum member. 


In 1977, Casella was founded as a single truck operation in Rutland.  Today, Casella leads the solid waste industry with an innovative business strategy that seeks to create sustainable value beyond the traditional disposal model.  

Most recently, Casella was involved with the Great Snow Gun Roundup,  helping to make more snow with less energy.  Staying true to their sustainable mission, the goal is to make Vermont the premier state for snow making in the most environmentally efficient way possible. 


Casella also takes part in event clean up and sponsoring upcoming local events, such as Green Up Vermont and Spring Move Out Project.
