Republic Services Adds More CNG Trucks in Phoenix


Republic Services has added four more compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered solid waste collection trucks to its fleet serving customers throughout the greater Phoenix area. The CNG trucks replace older diesel-powered models and bring the total number of natural gas vehicles operated by Republic Services throughout Arizona to 34.

“Natural-gas-powered collection trucks run cleaner and quieter, providing our customers and the communities we serve with a top-notch level of customer service and minimal impact on the environment,” says Alberto Guardado, area president of Republic Services. “This CNG fleet expansion represents a significant investment in cleaner, safer and more-efficient vehicles in our local Phoenix Metro area.”

Republic Services operates a natural gas fueling station at its Lower Buckeye location to support its expanding Phoenix-based CNG fleet. Nationwide, the company operates a fleet of more than 2,200 CNG trucks and 38 CNG fueling stations. Republic says its CNG fleet helps to save roughly 18 million gallons of diesel fuel annually.
