Composters process your food scraps into nutrient rich soil products. We operate a compost facility in Unity, Maine, and supply feedstocks to several other professional composters throughout the northeast.

Anaerobic Digestion

Anaerobic digesters process your food scraps into renewable energy and soil products. We operate two of them in Massachusetts, and have partnered with others throughout the northeast.

Commercial Collection

We provide food waste collection service to hundreds of businesses and institutions throughout the northeast. Call 1-800-CASELLA to learn if this service is available in your area.

Residential Collection

Many municipalities are working to introduce residential food waste collection. We provide collection and processing services in support of these innovative pilots, including both curbside pickup and drop-off solutions.

Customized Signage, Bins, Education

Food waste diversion is new to many people, and successful programs must provide thoughtful education to drive awareness and behavior change. We work with our customers to develop customized signage, bin configurations, and training programs for food waste.

On-Site Solutions

If your organization generates large quantities of food waste, you may be interested in on-site processing solutions to improve the recyclability of your materials without distracting from your daily business. Let us help you explore the options.

Closed-Loop Recycling Solutions

We’re helping many leading businesses find ways to “close the loop” by processing their food scraps into soil products and renewable energy which they can use in their own operations. For example, a college whose landscaping uses compost made from their own food waste; or an industrial facility whose power comes in part from the anaerobic digesters that process their organic residuals.
