Hauler Ace Solid Waste Converting to CNG, Adds Station

Waste and recycling hauler Ace Solid Waste Inc. has begun converting its truck fleet to compressed natural gas (CNG) and has added a fueling station for its trucks.

The Ramsey, Minn.-based Ace plans to convert its entire 60-truck fleet to CNG in five years, according to Owner Andy Schweizer, in a news release.

Ace commissioned Vocational Energy, part of Tampa, Fla.-based Trucks.com, to build the facility, a “time-fill” station that allows the trucks to fill up overnight with attendant supervision. It can fuel up to 40 trucks at once.

"It just didn't make sense anymore to send billions of our dollars every day to purchase oil from governments that are not friendly to the United States," Schweizer said. “Some people say CNG is a 'green' fuel, but we look at it as red, white, and blue."
