Oklahoma City has opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station to supply its growing line of CNG solid waste collection trucks.
The facility, built at a cost of $2.82 million, has 56 time-filled hoses for collection trucks, two fast-fuel hoses and two that are open to the public, according to an e-mail from the city. Construction began in September 2012. The city owns and operates the facility.
Oklahoma City has 13 CNG side-loader waste trucks; four rear-loader and six brush trucks. The city will soon add 13 side loaders, one rear loader and two brush trucks.
