McNeilus Announces Contract for CNG-Powered Trucks

McNeilus Companies, Dodge Center, Minn., has announced a contract to send 58 compressed natural gas- (CNG) powered garbage trucks to 11 haulers in Brookhaven, N.Y.

“We’re very excited to have demonstrated the benefits of CNG and how that impacts both our environment and our customer’s profitability in refuse collection,” said Mike Wuest, president of McNeilus, in a press release. “When you look at the cost of a barrel of oil in comparison to the cost of natural gas over time, it puts CNG-powered vehicles in a whole new light. If you add in the green component along with the tax benefits, then choosing CNG becomes even clearer.”
