Waste acquires municipal solid waste landfill in Pennsylvania
Casella Waste Systems, Inc. has acquired a
municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill in McKean County, Pennsylvania
out of bankruptcy proceedings for $0.5 million in cash and the
assumption of certain contractual obligations.
The roughly 230 acre landfill is permitted
by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to
accept 1,000 tons per day of MSW by truck and 5,000 tons per
day by rail. While a rail siding is permitted at the site and
the property abuts a railroad spur, the company has no immediate
plans to build a rail siding. The site has over 33.5 million
cubic yards of permitted airspace.
