“Since natural gas-powered collection trucks run cleaner and quieter, we’ve made the commitment to use more in our local operations and support sustainability in this community by opening a public CNG station,” said Tim Wells, area vice president for Waste Management in Kentucky as well as Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee. “We are dedicated to providing our greater Louisville area customers with outstanding service while doing business here in the most sustainable manner possible.”
Waste Management collaborated with PetroCard to develop the first CNG fueling station in Louisville. The new Clean N’ Green Fuel facility was funded by Waste Management and PetroCard.
In 2007, the company set a goal of reducing fleet emissions by 15 percent and increasing fuel efficiency by 15 percent by 2020. “Waste Management already operates nearly 1,700 CNG vehicles, the largest fleet of CNG recycling and waste collection trucks in North America,” Wells concluded.
