"We don't have many landfills in Massachusetts, but we do have a lot of landfill restrictions," declared Dan Costello, president of Costello Dismantling, based in Middleboro, Mass. "Instead of landfills, there is a network of construction and demolition processing and recycling facilities, not only in Massachusetts, but around the region that have developed to meet the need of recycling C&D material."

How 5 small firms handle high gas prices
The Street    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Small business owners with fuel as a major expense are being forced these days to get more efficient. And most say that's not a bad thing. Surging gas prices have topped the news for weeks as gas prices have crept toward $4 a gallon, with some bearish experts speculating we could see $5 per gallon by the summer.
