MASCARO WINS $1 MILLION TRASH AND RECYCLING CONTRACT TO SERVE BOROUGH OF CLARKS GREEN, LACKAWANNA COUNTY

J. P. Mascaro & Sons, a local waste and recycling company, has been awarded a new three-year service contract to serve the Borough of Clarks Green, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.  The contract is valued at $1,000,000.  As part of the contract, Mascaro will provide both trash and recycling carts for once-a-week trash and recycling collection services for all households in the Borough, located just north of Scranton, Pennsylvania. This contract will start on April 1, 2024. Mascaro will add as acceptable recyclable materials “flexible plastic packaging” or FPP recyclables curbside for the Borough. FPP, which includes plastic bags, wraps, pouches, product packaging, etc., represents a growing portion of the residential household waste stream.  Historically, this material has not been successfully recycled and has had to be landfilled.  However, Mascaro, with its state-of-the-art TotalRecycle, Inc. (Materials Recovery Facility), will begin to collect these materials from Borough households, which will allow these materials to be recycled for reuse rather than landfilled.  Mascaro will be mailing each one of those households a notice with information regarding this new FPP material that will be collected as recyclable material.

Sam Augustine, Mascaro’s Director of Sales and Marketing, noted, “We are extremely pleased that our company has been chosen to serve the Borough residents for the next three years, and we look forward to renewing our relationship with the Borough.  Mascaro previously serviced the Borough a few years ago.  The contract will be serviced by Mascaro’s Wyoming Valley Facility located in nearby Nanticoke, Luzerne County. 

J. P. Mascaro & Sons, a local company, founded and headquartered in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, is the largest privately-owned waste company in the Mid Atlantic Region. The company was founded by Joseph P. Mascaro, Sr., and is operated by his four sons. Today, the company has the benefit of an emerging third generation of family members to help guide the company into the future. J. P. Mascaro & Sons operates a strategic infrastructure of recycling, transfer and disposal facilities in the region that has enabled it to be the major provider of municipal collection services.
