Allied Waste of Boise Opens CNG Station

Allied Waste Services of Boise, a subsidiary of Phoenix-based Republic Services, has opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station. The facility will fuel the firm’s CNG refuse truck fleet and, starting in 2010, will also serve the public.

“We believe that CNG, because it is a domestic fuel resource, is a positive move for the country and will help us achieve energy independence,” said Kory Coleman, area president of Republic Services’ Mountain Region, in a press release. “The use of these clean-burning CNG trucks as replacements for our older diesel models aligns with the city of Boise’s strategic plan to achieve consistent compliance with increasingly stringent standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.”
