MASCARO WINS AND PERFORMS LARGE RECYCLING CONTRACT FOR CONSORTIUM OF SEVEN MONTGOMERY COUNTY MUNICIPALITIES

In November 2015, as the chosen contractor in a competitive bid process, local waste service company J. P. Mascaro & Sons began performing a large three-year contract for the processing and marketing of collected residential recyclables from a consortium of seven Eastern Montgomery County municipalities.

In a one-of-a-kind contract, the municipalities of Abington, Cheltenham, Upper Dublin, Plymouth, Springfield, Upper Moreland and Hatboro Borough deliver all of their residential recyclables to the Upper Dublin recycling transfer station, and it is there that Mascaro’s contract work begins.

Mascaro is responsible for the operation of the transfer station, for the processing of the recyclables through the transfer station, for the loading of recyclables into Mascaro-provided transport trailers, and for the transportation of the recyclables to Mascaro’s new, modern, fully-automated 75,000 square foot single-stream recycling facility (“TotalRecycle, Inc.”) in Berks County, where the consortium’s recyclables will be further processed and marketed.

The consortium communities generate about 15,600 tons of residential recyclables for Mascaro to process and market at its new single-stream facility, and the contract, based upon an agreed-upon formula, offers the possibility of revenue generation for the participating municipalities if the recycling markets improve.

Company President, Pat Mascaro, said, “Our company was pleased to be chosen as the consortium’s recycling contractor and it is proud to be a part of the consortium’s comprehensive recycling program.”

“With many more municipalities going to single-stream recycling (i.e., all recyclables placed in one container), recycling volumes are going up and less waste is being landfilled.  That is why our company invested millions of dollars in a new single-stream recycling facility. We want to be able to professionally process and market the recyclables generated by Southeastern Pennsylvania municipalities,” added Mascaro.

Mascaro’s new “TotalRecycle” facility will employ approximately 30 area residents and will be able to process about 500 tons of single-stream recyclables each day.  With its new facility, Mascaro is looking forward to expanding its market share in the recyclables processing arena.
