“We are committed to doing our part to leave a cleaner, healthier community for our children and grandchildren,” said Ron Krall, area president of Republic Services. “With these new trucks, we are reducing ozone-forming emissions to levels equal to removing 535 automobiles off Orange County roads. Our employees are proud to make a difference in their community.”
Republic installed a natural gas fueling station to support its new fleet of CNG powered trucks in Anaheim. Infrastructure enables NGVs to fuel during non-peak hours, which has the added benefit of reduced energy consumption during the refueling process.
Republic operates a fleet of more than 1,400 CNG vehicles and 26 natural gas fueling stations nationwide. Approximately 50 percent of all Republic vehicles purchased in 2013 are powered by the domestic fuel source.
In addition, the company provides service to the Anaheim School District, Anaheim Stadium, Disney Parks and Resort, Fullerton School District, Garden Grove Unified School District, Honda Center, and Placentia-Yorba Linda School District. Through its subsidiaries, Republic has been proudly serving customers in Anaheim and throughout Orange County for more than 64 years.
