For decades, Casella Organics has been providing reliable residuals management services to the Cascades mill in Auburn Maine. The mill is a pulp mill, using primarily waste paper as a feedstock. To complement their commitment to sustainability, our services allow them to recycle their byproduct (short paper fiber) and become an almost zero waste facility. Key to our ability to provide long term value is a program that combines a diversity of outlets. Over the years, we have developed a number of beneficial uses (BioMix soil, direct land application, animal bedding, and more) for the fiber and our expertise allows us to be very flexible with program management - pursuing the highest and best use of the material whenever possible. In addition, our diversity of outlets helps them to manage residuals inventory onsite, so despite a lack of storage space there is never an issue of having a backlog of material disrupt their operations.
