Advanced Disposal Expands CNG Presence with Wisconsin Fueling Station

Advanced Disposal has opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Hartland, Wis.

The Ponte Vedra, Fla.-based Advanced Disposal spent $1.7 million to add the CNG station at its hauling facility in Hartland, according to a news release. About 11 percent of the collection routes in the greater Waukesha County area run on CNG, and it accounts for 11 trucks. The number of trucks will increase as the company replaces diesel trucks that are at the end of their life.

“We are on track to meet our goal to increase our CNG fleet to 15 percent by the end of 2015,” said Advanced Disposal CEO Richard Burke. “Our commitment to CNG is a significant one we’ve made to keep our fleet running cleaner and to creating a more sustainable Earth for future generations.”

Advanced Disposal has expanded its CNG reach steadily. In September it opened a $1.6 million CNG fueling station at its hauling facility in Macon, Ga., and it is now operating 15 CNG trucks in the area, with plans to expand the fleet. The new station is the only multi-truck CNG station in the Macon metro area.

About 25 percent of the trucks operating in the Macon area currently run on CNG. As with the latest CNG station in Wisconsin, the Macon CNG trucks will carry a logo that reads, “powered by CNG.”

Other haulers are making that move as well. Earlier this month Connecticut waste hauler All Waste Inc. opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Hartford, Conn., and will add 10 CNG-fueled vehicles this fall. The Hartford-based All Waste is undergoing a five-year process of converting 60 of its 80 waste trucks to CNG, and already has 20 currently running on CNG.
