J.P. Mascaro & Sons, a Pennsylvania waste disposal company, is one of many businesses that could significantly affect the U.S. economy. According to The Times-Tribune, J.P. Mascaro & Sons received a $135 million contract from the Keystone Sanitary Landfill in Dunmore, Pennsylvania, in December 2012. The agreement will allow the business to expand its operations, and company officials said more workers will be hired to complete waste management projects over the next few years.
"This contract, by reason of its size, location and prestige, will give our already successful business a tremendous boost, and…solidify our northeastern Pennsylvania operations," company spokesperson Pat Mascaro told the news source.
Business administrators noted that the company has already purchased 27 new trucks and 68 trailers. New employees will be eligible to receive base salaries between $47,000 and $54,000 annually.
Waste management could be a major economic driver for Long Island residents in the future. WaterWorld reports that Long Island officials are discussing strategies to maximize the value of waste management projects.
