BOROUGH OF SOUDERTON AWARDS $1.7 MILLION TRASH AND RECYCLING CONTRACT TO J. P. MASCARO & SONS

For some time now, the Borough of Souderton has considered whether to go to a contracted single hauler trash system for its residents. The decision to do so was made at a recent public meeting where Borough Council awarded a new three-year $1.7 million Waste Collection and Recycling Contract to local waste service company J. P. Mascaro & Sons.

Under the contract, which will start on January 1, 2016, Mascaro will serve over 2,000 households and will provide Borough residents with once-a-week curbside trash and single stream recycling services using vendor-provided 96 gallon and 64 gallon wheeled toters.In a single stream recycling system, all of the different types of recyclables can be mixed together in one container.The Borough’s contract with Mascaro also allows each household to put out additional trash cans, if needed, as well as one bulk item per week, for collection.

Company Director of Sales and Marketing, Sam Augustine, who appeared before Borough Council on several occasions to answer questions Council had before converting to a “single hauler system” said, “We are extremely happy to add the Borough of Souderton to the growing list of area municipalities that use our company for contracted trash and recycling services, and we look forward to serving Borough residents for years to come.”

 

Augustine added, “The trend today is that more municipalities are changing to a single hauler contract system to meet their trash and recycling needs.The reasons for this change include economy, efficiency, reduced truck traffic and roadway wear and tear, reduced noise, neighborhood safety, greater vendor accountability, and more municipality control.”

Speaking to the new contract award, company President, Pat Mascaro, said, “Our company provides contracted trash and recycling services to a large number of Pennsylvania municipalities, but it is really special when we earn a new service contract from a ‘home area community’ such as the Borough of Souderton.”Mascaro added, “We are a Montgomery County founded and based company, and our Souderton operating division is the company’s oldest.To be able to serve the Borough and its residents is a real honor and we greatly appreciate the opportunity.”

The Borough’s recyclables will most likely go to “TotalRecycle,” Mascaro’s new multi-million dollar 72,000 square foot single stream recycling center in Exeter Township, Pennsylvania. That center is immediately adjacent to the Mascaro-owned Pioneer Crossing Landfill. TotalRecycle’s single stream technology is tops in the business, and the facility is scheduled to open in late 2015 or early 2016.
