Moreover, the waste operator was presented with a formal resolution from Governor Robert McDonnell commending the company for its progressive green initiatives and use of natural resources. “He is pleased to see companies like TFC Recycling embrace and use fuels such as natural gas, which means cleaner air in Virginia and more American jobs,” said Cathie France, Virginia’s Deputy Secretary of Energy.
The six CNG trucks will be visible immediately providing curbside pickup service in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Suffolk and the Outer Banks. TFC hopes to add more cities to its network, enabling them to join in a nationwide movement to switch more trucks from petroleum-based fuels to natural gas.
TFC Recycling’s new 20-bay maintenance facility is CNG compliant and the first of its kind in Hampton Roads. Mechanics there are certified in alternative fuels and can assist other businesses that are interested in conversion and maintenance.
