Leading the Way in Mattress Recycling

In 2021, the Willimantic MRF, in cooperation with the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC), processed more than 4,300 tons of mattresses for recycling. The Willimantic MRF, one of two mattress recycling facilities in the state, has contributed to the collection and processing of over 1 million mattresses in Connecticut since 2015. This commitment to sustainability has diverted materials from landfills and incinerators, helped to reduce illegal dumping, and created jobs in the recycling industry. The Willimantic MRF has also contributed to the conservation of resources, as more than 75% of a mattress (steel, wood, foam, etc.) can be recycled into other products.

Celebrating Our Casella Superfans

Since the initial launch in early Summer 2021, the Super Fan boxes have taken on a life of their own spreading good cheer and the Casella brand both far and wide. From birthday parties and play dates to friendly random acts of kindness, more than 500 boxes have been ordered and delivered by various divisions throughout our region. For many young children, their local drivers in the Connecticut area provide a regular sense of joy and example of hard work and dedication. Some even consider them real life superheroes and love receiving the boxes that include items such as a child-sized Casella baseball hat and safety vest, along with a toy recycling container, matchbox garbage truck, coloring book, and set of crayons.
