J.P. Mascaro & Sons, a family owned waste service company with facilities across Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, has opened the doors on their first single-stream recycling facility. Located in Birdsboro, PA, the facility is called TotalRecycle, Inc. and is operated by the third generation of the Mascaro family. The 75,000 square foot facility services waste haulers, municipalities, residents, and businesses, and operates at 35 tons per hour.
The facility contains cutting-edge technology provided by Van Dyk Recycling solutions of Stamford, CT. Two Lubo screens first separate OCC and glass, with the glass moving on to a Walair glass cleanup system that creates four fractions. Three additional Lubo screens separate fiber from containers, kicked off by Lubo’s new Anti-Wrapping ONP screen, a 12 ft wide screen with 440 stars. The stars incur virtually no wrapping, even after hours of operation. Cleaning and maintenance time is reduced to less than 10% of that of traditional starscreens.
A total of four TOMRA (TITECH) Autosort 4s recover any remaining fiber and separate all plastics. A Bakker overbelt magnet and eddy current recover ferrous and aluminum cans, respectively. The system is capped off by a Bollegraaf HBC-120S that is capable of baling all commodities accepted at the facility.
