Waste Management Inc. has opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Chino, Calif.
The Southern California unit of the Houston-based Waste Management said the new public fueling station will refuel the waste and recycling firm’s local fleet, and it also will sell CNG to commercial fleets and retail customers, according to a news release. Waste Management operates 24 CNG trucks in Chino and plans to replace its remaining diesel trucks this year.
Waste Management operates more than 1,100 CNG trucks in Southern California. The company achieved its goal, announced in 2007, of reaching a 15-percent reduction in fleet emissions by 2020 nine years ahead of schedule.
