Going Green with New Trash Contractor
In March, Neumann hired a new waste management contractor, J.P. Mascaro and Sons, which uses technologies, practices, and facilities that better align with the university’s efforts on sustainability. Benefits include eliminating the burning of trash and increasing the rate and tonnage of recyclable materials while decreasing the overall amount of waste and the campus carbon footprint.
“We did an RFP months ago to find options to deliver Neumann’s trash away from the Covanta incinerator in Chester,” said Gene McWilliams, vice president for finance and administration. “We have decided as a university that we are not in favor of having our trash burned in Chester, PA.”
