TotalRecycle Kicks Off Earth Day Celebration

Hundreds of guests came out to celebrate Earth Day and discover the inner workings of the recycling process at the state-of-the-art, material recovery facility (MRF), TotalRecycle.  Owned by local solid waste company, J.P. Mascaro & Sons, this Berk’s County located operation processes 700 ton of recyclables a day.   Customers saw the groundbreaking technique first hand April 20th during an Earth Day commemoration. 

The visitors toured the facility and observed the automated recycling sorting process in action. TotalRecycle is the only facility of this magnitude in the area.  With its beautiful but efficient infrastructure, TotalRecycle is capable of processing almost 20,000 ton a month.  That equates to 560,000 homes a week or over 50 cities the size of Reading.  TotalRecycle plays an essential role in the successful and expanded recycling efforts in, not only Berks County, but the surrounding counties and states.

Guests enjoyed food catered by Collegeville Bakery.  TotalRecycle works with businesses, waste haulers, municipalities and residents to enhance sustainability efforts.  The facility offers tours to customers and potential customers, as well as an educational tour to schools and adult community groups.  For more information visit http://www.jpmascaro.com/green-initiatives/community-tours.aspx
