Solid Waste & Recycling Services


Friday, June 7, 2019

The Pennsylvania DEP issued Great Valley Recycling, Inc., a J. P. Mascaro and Sons related company, a 10 year permit for the Great Valley Transfer Station (GVR) in Bridgeport, Pennsylvania.  The permit authorizes GVR to transfer up to 600 tons of municipal and residual waste per day, Monday through Saturday.

At GVR, waste is transferred in a fully-enclosed building, where collection vehicles dump their loads onto a concrete tipping floor and where experienced operators visually inspect the material before it is processed.  Thereafter, the waste is loaded onto over-the-road transport vehicles for delivery to end disposal facilities.  A state certified Scale Master weighs all inbound and outbound loads on a computerized heavy-duty platform scale and records all relevant information, and an onsite dispatcher insures efficient and timely waste processing. 

The facility has an administrative office and a maintenance building where Transfer Station and transport equipment is maintained and repaired.  The site is supervised by a General Manager and an Operations Manager and is manned by an experienced work force.  The Corporate Director of Environmental Compliance and his staff are responsible for assuring that all facility permit conditions and DEP regulations are followed.  Also onsite is a recycling operation where single-stream recyclables and cardboard are processed, baled and transported to third parties for further processing or end use.  

The GVR Transfer Station is an approved/designated facility under Montgomery County's Act 101 Municipal Waste Management Plan.  Commenting on the GVR permit, company president, Pat Mascaro, said, "In today's highly regulated waste industry, we understand how difficult it is to earn a DEP solid waste facility permit, and we are extremely pleased to have done so for the GVR Transfer Station."  Added Mascaro, "Being able to transfer waste at GVR enables Mascaro to provide the highest level of waste services to our area customers in the residential, municipal, governmental, commercial and industrial sectors."

Company Director of Environmental Compliance, Matthew Mascaro, said, "As a solid waste facility permittee, Mascaro is very mindful of its obligation to the environment.  In fact, our company's highest priority goal is 100% environmental compliance, not only at the GVR Transfer Station, but also at our other DEP-permitted transfer stations, landfills and compost facilities." Mascaro added, "Environmental compliance and customer satisfaction go hand-in-hand."

Founded and headquartered in Montgomery County, J. P. Mascaro & Sons is the largest privately-owned waste company in the Northeast. To serve its regional customer base, Mascaro collects, recycles, transfers, transports, disposes, beneficially reuses and composts nonhazardous solid waste.

In addition to the GVR Transfer Station, Mascaro-related entities own and operate eight other DEP-permitted solid waste facilities in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, including the Pioneer Crossing Landfill in Berks County, seven miles west of Pottstown.

Founded by Joseph P. Mascaro, Sr., and continued by his five sons, the company now has the benefit of a growing number of third generation family members to guide the business in the future.  For more information about J. P. Mascaro & Sons, its services and facilities, visit the company website at
