MASCARO LEADS THE WAY IN PROCESSING AND MARKETING RECYCLABLES

Local waste service company J. P. Mascaro & Sons, through its new TotalRecycle single stream recycling facility in Berks County, Pennsylvania, is processing and marketing recyclables from some of Pennsylvania’s largest municipalities. 

Mascaro’s TotalRecycle facility processes and markets recyclables (1) from the City of Allentown, Pennsylvania’s third largest city, which has an award winning curbside recycling program; (2) from a consortium of seven large Montgomery County municipalities, including Abington, Springfield, Cheltenham, Plymouth, Upper Dublin and Upper Moreland Townships, and the Borough of Hatboro; and (3) from Lower Merion Township, one of the largest municipalities in the state.

Using the most advanced automated sorting equipment available for recyclables, Mascaro’s modern 85,000 sq. ft. TotalRecycle facility processed and marketed more than 160 million pounds of recyclables in 2017, and it expects to process and market more than 200 million pounds of recyclables in 2018.

Mascaro Director of Sustainability, Joseph P. Mascaro, who manages the TotalRecycle facility, is optimistic that the company will continue to be at the forefront of material recycling and reuse.  Mascaro stated, “We are continually learning about recovering materials, increasing quality control, and improving the marketing of recycled materials.  Our company is committed to applying its resources to recycling and sustainability efforts and to facilities, equipment and systems that enhance and improve those efforts.”
