Residential Recycling Collection

Residential recycling is also collected curbside once-per-week on the same day in each Collection District (PDF) from occupied dwellings in Whitemarsh Township by J. P. Mascaro & Sons.

Residential recycling is single-stream which means that you may mix all recyclable materials into one container - there is no need to separate materials or even tie-or-bag newspapers.

Accepted Recyclable Materials

Residential recycling is collected by J. P. Mascaro & Sons and disposed by Re-Community. For a complete list of accepted recyclable materials, see the Re-Community Flyer (PDF) on acceptable materials.

Rewards-Based Recycle Program

As of January 1, 2013, Whitemarsh Township began participating in the resident rewards-based recycle program managed by J. P. Mascaro. The recycling incentive program by J.P. Mascaro is a community-wide based program and not individual residential weight-based.

Community-wide based program means all residents who register for the program can earn rewards based upon the weight of all the materials the township recycles. The collection trucks will no longer be weighing individual recycling containers so residents now have the option to use any container for recycling. The weight of the township's recyclable materials collected is be weighed at the Re-Community Facility where the materials are sorted and disposed. 

After the weight of the recyclable materials is recorded, J. P. Mascaro divides the total amount amongst all the residents of the township by awarding points that may be redeemed for rewards at various national and local businesses. You may call J. P. Mascaro at 1-888-MASCARO, or visit the recycling incentive program website to learn more about the rewards program or to activate your personal rewards account.
