Veolia ES Solid Waste Inc., a division of Veolia Environmental Services North America, has placed refuse trucks powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) into service in Indiana.
Autocar built the chassis for 20 trucks, and Kenworth manufactured eight roll-off trucks, Veolia says. The company received a $500,000 Clean Cities federal grant to help deploy the new CNG fleet, which will service over 24,000 residential and commercial customers across Vanderburgh, Warrick, Gibson, Posey, Spencer and Henderson counties.
The new trucks will use a CNG fueling station that Veolia operates in Evansville. The company has three other stations and more than 100 additional CNG-powered refuse collection and support vehicles in service.
