Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on Kathleen's Green Machine, a small Portland company co-owned by sisters Kathleen and Moria Casey that manages recyclables for 36 small businesses on the Portland peninsula because they don't produce enough individually to interest large waste brokers. The Casey's take the materials to Regional Waste Systems' recycling bins because they don't have storage space in which to accumulate enough material to sell it profitably. Kathleen Casey said she and her sister are beginning to sustain themselves solely on their business and she believes there is a large potential market for them in the Greater Portland area. With comments by Green Machine customers and spokespersons for Maine Businesses for Social Responsibility, WasteCap Maine, and others.
