Recent articles in Maine continue to portray ReSource Lewiston and Casella Waste Systems as two companies scheming to hurt Maines environment and its economy for their own benefit. The reality is that Maine’s economy would be affected if these two companies didn’t work together.

ReSource Lewiston recycles or repurposes nearly 200,000 tons annually of demolition and construction debris. All that material would be considered waste if it weren’t for this facility. The material that is reclaimed can be used to generate electricity, make medium-density fiberboard, create new cardboard, drywall and other miscellaneous materials.
