Solid Waste & Recycling Services


Wednesday, May 4, 2016

36 years ago, in 1980, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issued a Facility Permit for the Mascaro Waste Transfer Station in Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

“That was the beginning of a new era for J. P. Mascaro & Sons,” said company President, Pat Mascaro.“The permitting of the Mascaro Transfer Station, one of the first of its kind in this regional area, started J. P. Mascaro & Sons on its way from a small local company into one of the largest, most successful waste service companies in the industry,” added Mascaro.

More than three decades after its beginning, the Mascaro Transfer Station, on April 25, 2016, received its fourth Permit Renewal from DEP for its Franconia Township facility.The Permit Renewal is for 10 years.

At one time, this transfer station was Mascaro’s only DEP-permitted solid waste facility, but today it has been joined by numerous other Mascaro-affiliated solid waste facilities, including the Great Valley Recycling Transfer Station in Bridgeport, Pennsylvania, the Lehigh Valley Recycling Transfer Station in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania, the Pioneer Crossing Landfill in Exeter Township, Pennsylvania, the White Pines Landfill in Columbia County, Pennsylvania, the A&M Composting Facility in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and, most recently, the TotalRecycle single stream recycling facility in Exeter Township, Pennsylvania, one of the largest and most technically sophisticated recycling facilities in the state.

“All of these permitted solid waste facilities enable J. P. Mascaro & Sons to provide its customers with the most efficient, economical and environmentally sound waste services possible, and they also provide what our company needs to further grow its business in the future,” said Mascaro.

The Mascaro Transfer Station is permitted for 800 tons per day, 100 tons of which can be single stream recyclables; it handles municipal waste and certain approved residual waste; and the facility operates six days per week.Also housed at the transfer station location is one of Mascaro’s waste collection operating divisions, which employs many drivers, mechanics, customer service and support personnel, and which serves many of Mascaro’s commercial and industrial customers.
