GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Casella Waste Systems Inc was founded in 1975. It is a Delaware Corporation. The Company is a vertically-integrated solid waste, recycling, and resource management services company. It provides resource management expertise and services to residential, commercial, municipal and industrial customers, in the areas of solid waste collection, transfer, disposal, recycling and organics services. It operates in six states: Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Maine and Pennsylvania, with its headquarters being located in Rutland, Vermont. It manages its solid waste operations on a geographic basis through two regional operating segments, the Eastern and Western regions, each of which includes a full range of solid waste services, and its larger-scale recycling operations and commodity brokerage operations through its Recycling segment. Its solid waste operations comprise a full range of non-hazardous solid waste services, including collections, transfer stations, MRFs and disposal facilities. A majority of its commercial and industrial collection services are performed under one to three-year service agreements, with prices and fees determined by such factors as collection frequency, type of equipment and containers furnished, type, volume and weight of solid waste collected, distance to the disposal or processing facility and cost of disposal or processing. Its residential collection and disposal services are performed either on a subscription basis (with no underlying contract) by individuals, or through contracts with municipalities, homeowner associations, apartment building owners or mobile home park operators. Its transfer stations receive, compact and transfer solid waste collected mainly by its various residential and commercial collection operations, for transport to disposal facilities by larger vehicles. Its MRFs receive, sort, bale and resell recyclable materials originating from the MSW stream, including newsprint, cardboard, office paper, containers and bottles. It operates five MRFs in geographic areas served by its collection divisions. It disposes of solid waste at its landfills and at its waste-to-energy facility. The Company's competitors include Waste Management, Inc., Republic Services, Inc. and Waste Connections, Inc. The Company is subject to extensive and evolving federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations.
