Casella officially opened the doors of its newly renovated Charlestown, Massachusetts material recovery facility (MRF) with nearly 100 guests in attendance on Friday, June 9, 2023. The facility upgrade is complete with state-of-the-art equipment aimed to help increase throughput, improve end-product quality, and enhance safety.
Waste Dive's Cole Rosengren recently visited the facility and featured the facility in the most recent issue.
Casella’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Charlestown, MA is the largest on the East Coast and one of the largest in the world. The facility currently processes more than 180,000 tons of recyclables annually and is in the process of a complete retrofit, implementing the most current state-of-the-art technologies. The upgrades will result in the company’s ability to process up to 240,000 tons of material and provide best-in-class operations for its customers.
The upgrades represent Casella’s largest investment of this kind to date and come on the heels of more than $30 million in investments in its Resource Solutions operations over the past two years.
