SMC the First to Adopt Casella Waste System's Power of Three Closed-Loop Recycling Program

The Power of Three is premised off of picking up a customer's recycling, processing that recycling into new products, and then providing those products back to the customer in the form of new hand towels, tissue paper and toiletry items.

SMC's recycling is picked up by Casella, brought to the Material Recovery Facility in Williston where it is then sorted. Once sorted, the baled paper travels just one hundred miles more to the SCA plant in Glen Falls, NY to be made into 100% recycled paper content products (paper towels and toilet paper) that is then delivered back to SMC by Foley Distributing.

On November 15th, Saint Michael's College reaffirmed its commitment to being a leader in sustainability by being the first College to join Casella Waste Systems Power of Three closed loop recycling initiative.
