According to a recent article in the Mercury News, http://photos.mercurynews.com/2012/12/08/on-a-morning-route-with-waste-managements-new-cng-trucks/, Waste Management of Hayward has recently replaced some of their old diesel-run trucks for a new fleet of high-tech compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks and liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks.
On November 13, 2012, Waste Management took their first test run of their CNG and LNG trucks with already a positive result. Their trash removal duties in Hayward, Oakland, San Leandro and all over the Bay Area have not only become much more cleaner but efficient as well. The new CNG trucks provide a quieter and cleaner experience with zero-carbon emission than their older trucks. New tools and features allow the drivers to be safe, warm and clean in their early morning junk hauling routine. Waste Management announce that their 1,000 natural gas trucks will help further their green initiative by displacing over eight million gallons of petroleum and reducing over 45,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year. Further expansion of natural gas trucks are well under way.
At Fast Haul, we support the green efforts by recycling, junk hauling, and trash removal professionals everywhere!
I agree; we look forward to the day when there is an affordable, eco-friendly option to add to our fleet
Congrats on the eco-friendly fleet. You are definitely a forward thinker in this industry!
