Solid Waste & Recycling Services


“I would like to thank your guys who work here in the Feasterville area. I had just had both hips replaced and was outside trying to pick up a box from UPS when one of your guys calls over, "Hold on, I'll get that for you". Talk about a great help, he came over, helped me back into the house and then brought the box in for me. The thing is this isn't out of the norm for your guys, they are always going above and beyond for people. I have an elderly 90-year-old neighbor across the street who cant set out or retrieve her trash cans. If her can isn't out your guys go up and check it and if it needs emptied they take care of it. And if it is out they always make sure that they put it back up at her place where she keeps it. I dont know what your hiring process is or what your training process is but it works. You guys are the best! Keep up the great work, we truly appreciate every one of you. Richard H Myers” ~ Richard H Myers

“I just want to let you know that that workers who pick up my trash are wonderful respectful men. I am a senior widow. I was outside shoveling snow. Your men were picking up the trash and saw me. They came over to me and said that it was too cold for me to be shoveling. They shoveled the rest of my driveway out for me. They were wonderful. Thank you to them. Their kindness was most Appreciated.” ~ Louise
“Thank you for making your large item (piano) pickup so easy. We thought that we would have to pay extra or some other company to pick it up. This service is a valuable part of the service that you provide. Happy Holidays !!!” ~ Pat and Janet

Just wanted to you to extend my thanks and appreciation to the two men who helped me retrieve my cell phone yesterday.  The men had Truck 208 and we met at Villa Joseph Marie High School, Holland Road, Holland, PA

They truly went above and beyond expectations. In my effort to retrieve the phone, they corresponded with my family members via their own cell phone.  They even arranged for a contact point on their route at which I could pick up the phone.

Please extend my thanks to the two men.  They are truly an asset to your company and to the community.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to JP Mascaro for hearing our complaints and to Mr. Mike Flynn the Supervisor for Mascaro. Mr Flynn and his crew made our alley "SPIC AND SPAN" AGAIN !

Also a special thanks to the members of Norristown Council - two that we know of; Derrick Perry Sr. and Ms. Sonya for their assistance in this matter. The TRASH was really beginning to "take on a life" of it's own, and was drawing LARGE FLIES (like bird size) to the area. We HATE to have to HARRANGUE like this BUT - it is aggravating as HELL when a FEW who take no pride in their work, make it terrible for us to live, and also make more work for HARD WORKERS like MIKE FLYNN and his Crew, and neighbors like me who go out and pick up the debris left behind by EVERYONE ! Again - Thank you all !

~ Wally Harris, Norristoen

I was riding down S. Park Avenue near Appledale behind one of your trucks and I just had to call because I've never seen two guys hustle like these guys were.  I would hire them in a minute. I didn't have a problem waiting for them to pick up trash even across the street because they were working so hard, so fast as to not hold up the traffic.

~ Kyle Burns
“I just have to say thank you!   My van was stuck in the snow/ice and two of your employees (Josh and Yaya) stopped and helped me get out... I was sitting here for an hour and everyone drove by but they stopped and helped me.  It took all of 5 minutes but I wanted to let you know it was so nice of them. I hope I don't get anyone in trouble by telling you they stopped to help me but I would like to give your company a big thank you!” ~ Stephanie Burke, Warminster
“My car was stuck in the snow on Bustleton Pike and no one was helping me.  Then your truck came by, stopped, made sure traffic was clear and then your men proceeded to push me and my car out of the snow.  I was so very grateful!” ~ Pat Wilkie

Hi this is Carolyn.  I am Nicholas's Mom. I just want to thank you and your company for coming out for Nick. You made his day so special!!! He wore to School today His sweatshirt, hat and T shirt. He just loves loves all his gifts and could not wait to tell everyone he sees what happened!


You have no idea the impact you have made on Nick. He is over the top proud to wear your company's jacket and he also loved operating the garbage truck.


Thank you thank you! so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to see Nick. I wish there were more companies like you that would take the time for Children with Special Needs and whom have Autism. It makes a difference!


~ Carolyn A.

As a parent of a son with autism, I want to thank you for going out of your way to make a lasting impression not only for that little boy, but on the families who have children who don't have the benefit of going to baseball games, having friends who come and ask them to go out bike riding, sledding, to play tag , and all the other things that children do.  My son is 21 and still loves to watch the trash get picked up.  Our trash guys also took the time to let my son throw  our trash in and my son never forgot that gesture.  Thanks again.


~ Ann Dee Morris, Tamaqua


I enjoy doing business with you and your team, if there is an issue—it gets cleared up immediately.  And there are very few issues compared to our experience with other companies in the past.  You make this essential service easy and pleasant.  Thank you.

Wishing you and the group at Mascaro, a very happy, healthy, & prosperous 2017!

Hello!  Today around 12:45 PM, when I went to take my dog to the yard to do her  business, I noticed my neighbor's recyclables were all over the place. It appeared as though someone may have kicked or tossed my neighbor’s recycling bin. All recyclables were strewn across the street and into the yard of the neighbor across the street. There was broken glass in the road as a result and it was causing some trouble for drivers. I grabbed the recycling bin from across the street and brought it back to my neighbor’s house. I was trying to figure out how to gather everything (with 2 little ones unattended inside my house) and the J.P. Mascaro truck showed up to pick up recycling. The person driving the truck pulled over, got out, and immediately started to collect all the recyclables in the road. I wanted to commend the person for doing so. .As a resident, I appreciate him going the extra mile to ensure our neighborhood is clean and our street safe for drivers. Just wanted to share!

Thank you for all you do...

I wanted to let you know what an outstanding job the crew did in my neighborhood yesterday. (I live in South Whitehall.) In the morning, there was a very heavy windstorm. I went to do an errand and saw that all the recycling toters, which had not yet been collected, had blown over on the streets that I drove on to exit the neighborhood. A lot of paper, etc. was strewn about. When I came back, I followed a Mascaro truck. The crew was emptying the containers by hand, but more than that, they were also picking up the loose contents. Later, when I went again, I saw that all the containers were neatly lined up at the curbs, and the neighborhood looked beautiful. This excellent service is MUCH appreciated.

“One of your trucks was doing a pick up on Park Ave and my son was getting out of the car. He loves trash trucks.. obsessed. He stood and yelled "Hi!" to the guys on the truck and one of the guys on the truck waved back. Honestly I don't even know how he saw him because they were down a hill, but he literally made my son's day. Just wanted to say thank you and maybe that could trickle down to who ever that man was. Just wanted someone to know that even a little wave could make someone so happy, So thank you."” ~ Happy Parent in Warminster
