Solid Waste & Recycling Services


Wednesday, March 26, 2014

The J. P. Mascaro & Sons Family was recently awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award in Entrepreneurship by the National Italian-American Political Action Committee (NIAPAC) at its Annual Carnevale Black Tie Affair in Philadelphia. Mascaro was selected in part due to its humble beginnings and rise to its current status as one of the premier solid waste services companies in the country. Accepting the Award on behalf of his four brothers – Joe, Frank, Mike and Pat, and the extended Mascaro Family – was Louis J. Mascaro.

Also present at the event was company President, Pat Mascaro, and many of the third generation Mascaros who work in the family business as well. In accepting the Award, Louis Mascaro acknowledged his late parents, Joseph, Sr. and Ida, and credited them with instilling in the brothers the work ethic and perseverance that led to their success. J. P. Mascaro, Sr. started the business in 1964 with a single truck and a single contract. The five Mascaro brothers have grown the family business into what it has become today, a fully-integrated waste service company in the Mid-Atlantic region that competes in all sectors of the business, that has 17 operating divisions, 850 employees, and 400 trucks; that owns four DEP-permitted landfills and three DEP-permitted transfer stations, that operates three large-volume recycling facilities with a fourth modern single-stream recycling facility being constructed, and that owns and operates one of the largest compost facilities in the country

The core corporate philosophy of J. P. Mascaro & Sons has always been and continues to be that it has a commitment to its customers, its employees, and the community. Many Mascaro employees have worked for the company for decades and are an integral part of the family business. And as it relates to community involvement, J. P. Mascaro & Sons has a long and deeply-rooted history of quietly and substantially supporting a broad array of community programs, events and organizations. As a family business, the company views such support as a corporate responsibility and as being consistent with its philosophy of operating as “Your Friend in the Community.” This community participation was another basis for the Award.

Presenting the Award to the Mascaro family on behalf of NIAPAC, a Philadelphia-based organization that recognizes achievements of Italian-Americans in the community, was Master of Ceremonies, Vince Papale, former Philadelphia Eagle and NIAPAC member.
