Casella wins concession in operating its Southbridge, Massachussetts landfill

Casella Waste Systems, Inc. said that the town council in Southbridge, Massachusetts voted to approve the amended agreement for the operation of the Barefoot Road Sanitary Landfill.

The landfill is currently permitted to receive 180,960 tons per year of construction and demolition (C&D) residuals and limited municipal solid waste (MSW) from the Town of Southbridge. The amended agreement would not authorize an increase in the site’s total permit limit of 499,000 tons per year, but reallocates tonnage from the C&D processing facility to the landfill. The agreement would allow the company to seek approvals to convert the landfill from C&D to MSW and to increase the annual tonnage to 405,000 tons per year of MSW.

The operation of the facility as outlined in the amended agreement remains subject to the receipt of necessary permits.
