Media Advisory: Casella Waste Systems Opens Its First Natural Gas Fueling Station

WILLISTON, VT--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - Casella Waste Systems, Inc. will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at the company's new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Williston, Vermont on Friday, May 13, 2011. Attending the ceremony, and making remarks on the occasion, will be Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and Casella chairman and chief executive officer John Casella.

The media are invited to attend.

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, tours of the fueling station will be available to attendees and members of the media.

In late-2010, Casella introduced the first of its compressed natural gas-powered fleet of collection vehicles in the Burlington, Vt.-area as part of the company's ongoing effort to explore and deploy clean, fuel-efficient propulsion systems companywide. A domestically produced fuel, CNG is cleaner than diesel, and engines using CNG produce 50 percent fewer smog-causing emissions. CNG engines are also quieter than traditional engines.

The fueling station is the first one built by the company. The facility is located at 220 Avenue B, Williston, Vt.
