Northeast Resource Recovery Association is honored to announce that the keynote speaker for its 36th Annual Conference and Exposition will be Mr. John Casella. Mr. Casella is considered a leading authority in the solid waste industry in New England and a visionary with over 40 years of experience in the challenging world of resource recovery and sustainable materials management.
John Casella’s history, unparalleled knowledge of the current state of the industry and his constant forward looking vision make him a great fit for this year’s conference theme, “Back to the Future for Recycling…It’s Time”
It is with deep appreciation to John that NRRA makes this announcement. Mr. Casella’s address will kick off a full two days of workshops, presentations, and awards that will cover the gamut of interests from day to day operations, contract management, market realities, and long term planning. Resource Recovery is recognized nationally as one of the most challenging professions today and Mr. Casella will be able to address those challenges in a manner that will resonate with everyone in attendance.
John W. Casella has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors since July 2001 and as the Chief Executive Officer since 1993. Mr. Casella also served as President from 1993 to July 2001 and as Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1993 to December 1999. In addition, Mr. Casella has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Casella Waste Management, Inc. since 1977. Mr. Casella has been a member of numerous industry-related and community service-related state and local boards and commissions, including the National Recycling Coalition, Board of Directors of the Associated Industries of Vermont, The Association of Vermont Recyclers, the Vermont State Chamber of Commerce, the Rutland Industrial Development Corporation and Rutland Regional Medical Center. Mr. Casella has also served on various state task forces, serving in an advisory capacity to the Governors of Vermont and New Hampshire on solid waste issues. Mr. Casella holds an Associate of Science in Business Management from Bryant & Stratton College and a Bachelor of Science in Business Education from Castleton State College.
Our conference has it all, and attendees can even get credit for your NH Solid Waste Operator Training requirements through the NH DES.
