Spring/Summer 2022 Fuel & Inflation Update

We are constantly working to improve our service, contain our operating costs, and develop solutions to reduce our overall environmental impact. However, the rising costs of environmental compliance along with fluctuations in fuel prices, commodity values, and other items are not fully within our control. Because of this, customers may be assessed one or more of the fees described below depending upon their service or based upon the terms of their service contract.


Energy & Environmental Fee or Fuel Fee

The Energy & Environmental Fee or Fuel Fee is a company-wide recurring fee that is comprised of the floating Energy Fee and the fixed Environmental Fee. The Energy & Environmental Fee or Fuel Fee is not a tax, surcharge, or fee mandated by or remitted to any governmental or regulatory agency. The Energy & Environmental Fee will float on a monthly basis based upon the changes in diesel fuel prices and will be determined based on the customer type and the information below.

Collection Customers: The Energy component of the Energy & Environmental Fee or Fuel Fee for collection customers is based on the following linked EIA/DOE Table for U.S. On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices. New England (PADD1A) pricing is utilized for customers in ME, MA, NH, RI, CT, and VT. Central Atlantic (PADD1B) pricing is utilized for customers in NY, PA, NJ, DE, and MD. The Energy & Environmental Fee will be determined by the Energy & Environmental Fee Table.

Resource Solutions Customers: The Energy component of the Resource Solutions Energy & Environmental Fee for Resource Solutions customers is based on the following linked EIA/DOE Table for U.S. On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices. East Coast (PADD1) pricing is utilized for Resource Solutions customers. The Resource Solutions Energy & Environmental Fee will be determined by the Resource Solutions Energy & Environmental Fee Table.

Transfer Station Customers: The Energy component of the Transfer Station Energy & Environmental Fee for transfer station customers is based on the following linked EIA/DOE Table for U.S. On-Highway Diesel Fuel Prices. East Coast (PADD1) pricing is utilized for transfer station customers. The Transfer Station Energy & Environmental Fee will be determined by the Transfer Station Energy & Environmental Fee Table.

The Environmental component helps, in part, to cover direct and indirect company-wide costs to operate our collection, transfer, recycling, landfill, and landfill gas to energy and organics operations in a safe and environmentally sustainable manner, and to achieve an acceptable operating margin. The amount of the fee is not specifically tied to costs to service a specific customer account and is subject to change or implementation at any time at Casella’s discretion. 


Sustainability/Recycling Adjustment

Across the country, thousands of municipalities, businesses, institutions, and households are working to increase their recycling, reduce their waste and promote a more sustainable existence. They understand how wasting less and recycling more can help conserve resources, protect the environment, support jobs and create value. To make this work effectively, investments in infrastructure are required to deliver the value-added services that our customers demand.

Public policy has long supported sustainability while fostering its growth. At Casella, we have an obligation to meet the regulatory requirements and the needs of our customers to ensure the environmental and economic benefits of resource sustainability for generations to come.
