► What Is Single-Stream Recycling?

Single-stream recycling allows residents to place all recyclables: cans, bottles and plastics together with newspapers, cardboard, and mixed paper in one container.

► Mascaro is to begin providing trash and recycling toters in 2019. How will these be delivered? How will this affect trash and recycling collection? What happens if my toter is damaged?

In 2019, for the first time, JP Mascaro will be providing two red wheeled toters, one for trash and the other for recycling collection. The toters are the property of JP Mascaro and should remain with the property should you move. You can use any container up to 35 gallons for any additional trash that does not fit in the can, up to four additional cans. Additional cans should not weigh more than 50 lbs.

Toters will first be delivered before the end of January 2019 to each residence.

► What happens if my toter is damaged?

Should your Mascaro toter be damaged by routine wear and tear or a Mascaro crew, Mascaro will replace the toter at no charge. Should a resident damage a toter, residents would be responsible for the cost of replacement. Call JP Mascaro at 1-800-432-1616

► I do not wish to have either a trash or recycling wheeled toter. Can I refuse them?

There will be no fee discount for refusing the toters. However, once the cans have been delivered to your property in 2019, you can call Mascaro to collect them at 1-800-432-1616 and they will be removed from your property.

► I am a new resident. How do I set up trash collection? Where do I get my toters?

There is nothing that needs to be done for new residents to set up trash collection. Your trash fee for the first year in your home will be pro-rated to the date of closing on the property. After January 2019, the toters should already be on your property for both trash and recycling collection. If this is not the case, please call Mascaro at 1-800-432-1616.

► My trash was missed / I still have a question/:

Call JP Mascaro at 1-800-432-1616 or the Township @ (215)443-5414, Mon-Fri, 8:30 AM-4:30 PM.
If you receive a voicemail, please leave a detailed message and include your address and what specifically was missed (trash/recycling) and how many cans are at the curb.

► What does the information pamphlet look like?

Click here for a copy.

► How is the hauler picked?

  • Any work over $18,900.00 needs to be bided out. This requires potential business to supply their price in a sealed envelope which is not open until a specific time. Once everyone has submitted, we review the bids to make sure they meet all that we require. Once checked, we go with the lowest bid.
  • Township issued a bid for trash and recycling service. We asked for bids for multiple options. The pricing was to be based on a five-year contract with an option to extend for two more years. 
  • One option the Board of Supervisors selected was to include two toters for each property served. One is for trash and one is for recycling. This is being done to ensure each customer has a proper receptacle for their waste and to cut back on the number of loose bags and trash on the streets.
  • The cost of the toters is included in your annual trash fee. You will see that your fee has been adjusted to take into account the new contract.
  • The previous fees had remained unchanged for seven years.
