continued ZeroSort made things easier for customers, said Meyers, as all recyclables are sorted at Casella’s facilities, saving customers the effort and time often associated with handling the task themselves.
The implementation of ZeroSort has also helped Casella recycle 35 percent of the materials collected locally. And, with the help of its customers, said Meyers, the company hopes to reach 50 percent by 2014.
“Without businesses or colleges like Clinton Community, that goal would not be possible,” he said.
“The cost to do ZeroSort is just about the same as what our regular trash disposal service was, but we will see a big difference in the next couple of months once more people jump on board with this and we really see the amount of trash being reduced,” said Kazlo Watson. “That’s a really huge thing for us.”
