First Selectman David Lahm and Selectwoman Kristina White recently visited the Town’s recycling provider, Willimantic Waste, and came away with clear assurance that the Town’s efforts to recycle are in excellent hands. (Willimantic Waste had been recently purchased by Casella Waste Systems in Massachusetts.)
To see a video on what Willimantic does with the Town’s recycling, watch this video.
Casella Waste Systems’ commitment to recycling is stated on its website as follows: “Casella commits that 100 percent of non-contaminated recyclables that it receives and processes are sold to end markets to be made into new products or put to beneficial use. Casella is doing its part by investing in processing and finding new markets.”
