Throop is a borough in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, adjoining Scranton. Formerly, coal mining and silk manufacturing provided employment for the people of Throop, who numbered 2,204 in 1900 and 5,133 in 1910. In 1940, 7,382 people lived in Throop, Pennsylvania. The population was 4,088 at the 2010 census.
Throop is located at 41°26′44″N 75°36′52″W (41.445536, -75.614494).
According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough has a total area of 5.0 square miles (13 km2), all of it land. Its border meets neighboring towns, including: Olyphant, Dickson City, Dunmore, and Scranton.
On April 7, 1911, a fire at the Price-Pancoast Colliery killed 72 coal miners in what has been described as "the most appalling mine disaster in the history of the northern anthracite coal fields".
The borough contains a lead-contaminated parcel of land commonly known as the Marjol Battery site. Now owned by Gould Electronics, the empty land was a former battery processing facility closed in April 1982. Since the late 1980s, the federal United States Environmental Protection Agency and the state DEP have worked to clean up contamination in adjacent areas, but a final remedy for the site itself has remained on hold in recent years, as local officials and citizens fight with the government agencies and Gould over the best solution. In the meantime, the landowner has maintained a policy of basic containment and monitoring.
