Waste Pro Opens Two Florida CNG Fueling Stations; Building a Third

Waste Pro USA has opened in Florida two compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facilities in Palm Coast and Daytona Beach, and is starting construction on a third in Jacksonville.

The Longwood, Fla.-based Waste Pro said in a news release that the Daytona and Palm Coast stations have the capacity to time-fill 26 CNG solid waste collection trucks and can expand to fuel as many as 45 trucks simultaneously.

The Jacksonville facility will have a slightly larger system and be able to time-fill 50 trucks, with the capability to expand to handle upwards of 80 trucks. Waste Pro expects to complete that facility in early 2014.

Waste Pro’s partners on the design and construction of the completed projects were Mansfield Gas Equipment Services and J.R. Leonard Construction Co./CNG Services Group.

Waste Pro’s first CNG fueling facility opened in 2012 in Fort Pierce, Fla., as the first phase of a $100 million total investment in operating with the alternative fuel.
