Pennsylvania-based waste service company J. P. Mascaro & Sons announced it was recently awarded more than $7.5 million in competitively bid long-term municipal waste collection and recycling contracts.
"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," said J. P. Mascaro & Sons Director of Sales Sam Augustine in a statement.
In addition, last month, a J. P. Mascaro & Sons related company, Valero Terrestrial Corporation, was awarded a new five-year operating permit by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection for the Brooke County Landfill in Colliers, Brooke County, W.Va., which is about 22 miles from the city of Pittsburgh.
The Brooke County Landfill is one of two Mascaro-related landfills in West Virginia, the other being the Wetzel County Landfill in New Martinsville.
The Brooke and Wetzel County Landfills serve as the primary disposal facilities for waste collected by the two operating divisions of Solid Waste Services of West Virginia, Inc., the Mascaro-related collection company that serves municipal, commercial and industrial customers in the panhandle region of West Virginia, 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,” said Director of Engineering Ryan K. Inch in a statement. “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."
"The company is pleased to have earned this DEP [department of environmental protection) facility permit, and we look forward to providing regional area waste disposal services for years to come," said President Pat Mascaro in a statement.
