The city of Concord, N.H., has awarded Casella Waste Systems a 10-year waste and recycling collection contract that includes both solid waste and recycling management services.

“We’re pleased the city of Concord saw not only the economic value of working in partnership with us, but the potential long-term resource conservation and recycling expertise we bring to the community, as well,” says John Casella, chairman and CEO of Casella Waste Systems. “We’re eager to give Concord’s citizens the same level of service they’ve enjoyed for many years, plus a path to conserve and sustain even more resources.”

The agreement provides for residential curbside collection of municipal solid waste and recycling, transfer and disposal of the city’s solid waste, operation of the city’s transfer station, waste and recycling collection services in Concord’s downtown district, yard waste collection and collection services for municipal agencies, events and activities. The company says it expects to handle more than 30,000 tons of solid waste and recyclables through the contract.

Casella currently provides service for Concord via the city’s current contract with BBI Inc., which Casella acquired in late 2012. Casella’s new contract with Concord begins July 1, 2014. The agreement covering the transfer and disposal of Concord’s solid waste begins on January 1, 2015 and all portions of the contract run through June 30, 2024. The contract has an option for two five-year extensions.
