Development of the Waste Pro fueling station at Fort Pierce has been permitted, with opening projected for early third quarter of 2012. In Phase One of its CNG transition effort, Waste Pro expects to deploy 150 heavy-duty waste collection and recycling trucks to serve residential and commercial customers.
Last year, Waste Pro announced its investment of $100 million for vehicles and fueling stations to transition a portion of its fleet from diesel fuel to compressed natural gas fuel. “We care about the communities we serve. This move will reduce emissions in our operating footprint and potentially provide fueling stations for the cities and counties we serve,” said president and CEO of Waste Pro John J. Jennings.
Moreover, Clean Energy vice president Raymond P. Burke said: “We are pleased to partner with Waste Pro to support its new fleet commitment to natural gas-powered trucks to add fuel diversity, curtail harmful emissions and dependence on foreign oil.”
