In this episode of Beyond the Bin, we have a special interview with Dan Gagnon, a driver for Casella. When Dan Gagnon decided to quit smoking in 2010 he replaced it with a new habit, running. He never dreamed that more than a decade later he would be using his 17-mile commute as a training opportunity for his seventh marathon, or that he would be helping to improve many other lives and not just his own. Like many Casella drivers, Dan's commitment to service extends far beyond the cab of his truck and in October, Dan will be running in the Boston Marathon, his fifth marathon in support of St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
