Waste Industries USA Inc. has added 38 waste trucks, most of which use compressed natural gas (CNG).

The Raleigh, N.C.-based Waste Industries purchased 38 Autocar Xpeditor ACX refuse trucks, according to a news release from the Hagerstown, Ind.-based Autocar.

“Waste Industries is currently converting the majority of our trucks to run on CNG,” said Josh Thompson, purchasing manager at Waste Industries. "Being able to partner with Autocar, the leader in CNG, gave us a lot of comfort and exposure to working with people who are natural partners for that."
