Florida City Council Gives Green Light to CNG Trash Collection Vehicles


The City Council in Iverness, Fla., recently voted to adopt compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered garbage trucks for its trash collection services, according to the Chronicle Online.

As reported, the council conducted the vote on April 4.

The report states that the council “accepted a fourth amendment of the city’s solid-waste collection agreement with Waste Management” for the change, and members were given a demonstration of one CNG vehicle’s operation in front of city hall.

Notably, the CNG garbage trucks operate on an automated system, eliminating the need for a “back-of-truck” worker to manually carry out the trash collection.

According to the report, Iverness will receive three of the natural gas vehicles in January 2018.
