“We are very pleased that Republic Services chose Carmel as the first city to be exclusively serviced by CNG trucks. As a City government, we have a policy to purchase only alternative fueled vehicles. Republic’s decision to convert to CNG trucks matches our own environmental policy,” said Mayor Jim Brainard.
Carmel decided on natural gas as it recognizes it is found in abundance in North America and reduces energy dependence on foreign countries.
