J.P. Mascaro & Sons, headquartered in Audubon, Pennsylvania, received more than $7.5 million in competitively bid long-term municipal waste collection and recycling contracts. Several Pennsylvania municipalities awarded the company contracts, including Muhlenberg, Hamburg, Catasauqua and Newton.
“Our company really appreciates the new long-term waste collection and recycling contracts recently awarded to us by the municipalities of Muhlenberg, Hamburg, Catasauqua and Newton, and we look forward to serving these communities and their residents,” says Sam Augustine, director of sales at J.P. Mascaro & Sons.
The company also received a five-year operating permit from the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection to operate the Brooke County Landfill in Colliers, West Virginia.
According to a news release from J.P. Mascaro & Sons, the Brooke County Landfill is one of two Mascaro-related landfills in West Virginia, the other being the Wetzel County Landfill in New Martinsville, West Virginia. Those two landfills serve as primary disposal facilities for waste collected by the operating divisions of Solid Waste Services of West Virginia Inc., a J.P. Mascaro-related collection company that serves municipal, commercial and industrial customers in the panhandle region of West Virginia and in eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.
“The Brooke County Landfill is an important component of the operational infrastructure of the Mascaro-related waste service businesses in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania,” says Ryan K. Inch, company director of engineering at J.P. Mascaro. “These businesses not only serve our municipal, commercial and industrial customers, but also are important to the thriving Marcellus and Utica Shale gas development activities occurring in that three-state regional area.”
