To ring in 2019, the City of Vineland, N.J., is celebrating a fleet of new compressed natural gas (CNG) garbage trucks.
According to local coverage from the Vineland Daily Journal, the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) has become the trash collector for Vineland – located in Cumberland County – under a new five-year agreement, bringing ACUA’s 11 CNG trucks to the city.
The vehicles will be based at the Cumberland Improvement Authority, which will also become home to a new CNG refueling station that will serve the ACUA fleet. Until the station is completed next month, the vehicles will fuel at two other facilities in Vineland and Millville, according to Richard S. Dovey, president of ACUA.
Per the report, Dovey says the new agreement will “add to the Cumberland County-Vineland economy.” Last Thursday, ACUA held a parade of the new CNG trucks through Vineland to celebrate the deployment.
Earlier this year, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced that ACUA had grown its CNG fleet by seven, bringing an additional annual volume of 84,000 GGEs.
