Pomona, Calif., Converts Waste Fleet to CNG

The city of Pomona, Calif., has converted its entire fleet of waste vehicles to compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks.

Pomona is expecting delivery this month of 22 CNG Mack TerraPro Low Entry vehicles. The city ordered 20 side loaders and two rear loaders, according to a Mack news release.

 “The City of Pomona is committed to reducing its environmental footprint,” said Howard Morris, Pomona solid waste manager.

“Refuse is an ideal application for natural gas because these trucks return home each day for refueling,” said James Waterbury, Mack Pacific District sales manager.

Pomona worked with TEC Equipment Inc., La Mirada, Calif., to complete the purchase.

The trucks were built at Mack’s Macungie Assembly Operations outside of Allentown, Pa.
