WCA Waste Corp., a Houston-based solid waste services company, has opened its first public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station. The new station, located at 5002 S.W. 41st Blvd. in Gainesville, Fla., is situated near WCA’s existing time-fill CNG facility. Both stations were built by developer TruStar Energy.
Bob Shires, WCA regional vice president, says the company currently operates about 50 CNG trucks in the area. WCA is the preferred solid waste and recycling provider in Gainesville and Alachua County. In addition, WCA is the official sustainability partner of the University of Florida.
The company says its new CNG station is open to the public 24/7 and can accommodate a variety of natural gas vehicles ranging in size, from passenger cars to heavy-duty trucks. It also accepts all major credit cards and fleet cards.
