ProfileJames Mazza Jr. is President and CEO of Mazza Recycling Services and Affiliates, a role he has held since June 2017. Previously, he served as Chief Operating Officer for four years. James began working with the Mazza Recycling family of companies in 2007. He began his career in the demolition and recycling industry operating machinery and managing demolition jobs at the age of 15. Over the past decade, he has worked at changing the central focus of Mazza from a construction and site work company, to a full-service, state-of-the-art recycling facility, guided by values of sustainability, commitment to the environment, and community. James' vision and strategic thinking prompted him to develop several of Mazza’s now fundamental divisions, including waste collection services, and single stream, paper, and plastic recycling operations. In 2014, James launched Mazza Mulch Inc, now the largest producer of mulch and landscape products in the tristate area. Under James' leadership, Mazza Recycling has developed into a comprehensive recycling and collection company serving the residential, commercial, and municipal recycling needs of Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex counties.
