Casella Waste to expand landfill

Casella Waste Systems, Inc. announced that Ontario County received a modification to the County’s existing permit for the operation of the municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill in Seneca, New York, increasing the annual permit to 917,694 tons per year from 612,000 tons per year.

“With the successful permit modifications at the Hakes and Ontario landfills, we have increased our annual permitted capacity by approximately 457,000 tons per year, over one-half of our targeted 900,000 ton increase in annual capacity.” said John W. Casella, chairman and chief executive officer of Casella Waste Systems.

Casella Waste Systems is the operator of the facility and entered into a 25 year operating agreement with Ontario County in December, 2003. The permit modification has an effective date of October 9, 2007.
