Republic Services is planning to continue to build its alternative-fuel fleet and expects to operate nearly 80 CNG-fueled trucks in the St. Louis area by the end of 2012. “We’re always looking for projects that will improve our environmental footprint and help our customers meet their own sustainability goals,” Trost said.
On a nationwide basis, Republic renewed its commitment to improving the environment in 2012 by dedicating 68 percent of its new truck purchases to natural gas vehicles. At its current rate of conversion, Republic plans to have more than 3,100 trucks nationwide running on natural gas and other alternative fuels by the end of 2015.
