Please take notice and do what you can to support and save our recycling program from privatization. There is yet another public hearing scheduled for September 9th, 7:00pm at the Wayne County Courthouse in Lyons. The Board has dragged it's feet so long, unable to make a decision, that our fleet of collection trucks has been allowed to deteriorate to a dangerous point. Emergency repairs are being made now, leaving the easternmost towns without curbside pickup service for a month. Our program as we know and love it is doomed unless we muster enough support to convince our supervisors it's worth every dime invested now and in the future. In the long run it saves taxpayers money. It's a NOT-FOR-PROFIT SERVICE so we will never see profit-driven rate increases. There is a cost for this service, but it has proven more effective at serving the public interest and conserving resources than any other (private) service. It's has been working beautifully for years, but they're killing it by neglect.

Please show up, bring your friends and family and tell them how you feel about our program, what you think of their indecision. They need to see we're still here, we're watching, and we care.
Casella Waste says losses steady, income rose in 1Q
Sept. 2 -- Casella Waste Systems Inc. of Rutland, Vt., says losses remained steady as income rose during the first quarter of the company´s fiscal year.
For the three months ended July 31, the firm lost $2.9 million, or 11 cents per share, on revenue of $139.8 million. That compares with a loss of $2.8 million, or 11 cents per share, on revenue of $132.5 million for the previous first quarter.
"Entering the second quarter we completed the implementation of a systematic customer-by-customer profitability analysis to more effectively target pricing and we adopted sales commission structures to drive implementation. These steps are expected to improve our solid waste pricing to get us back on track to meet our fiscal year pricing objectives," CEO John W. Casella said.
