RUTLAND, Vt., Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Casella Waste Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CWST), a regional solid waste, recycling and resource management services company, announced that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (“NYSDEC”) issued a modified permit for the Clinton County Landfill to increase the annual permit limit from 175,000 tons per year to 250,000 tons per year.

“We are thrilled to receive this important annual permit increase at the Clinton County landfill,” said John W. Casella, Chairman and CEO of Casella Waste Systems, Inc.  “With this important permit issuance, we are well positioned to continue to meet the region’s disposal needs as other disposal facilities continue to permanently close.”

New England Waste Services of N.Y., Inc., is the operator of the facility and party to a 25-year operating agreement with Clinton County.  The NYSDEC issued the modified Part 360 permit on August 30, 2018.
