Waste Management Bringing CNG To Columbus-Area Fleet


Waste Management says it plans to convert to compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered trucks for its waste and recycling collection operations in Columbus, Ohio – the company's first fleet of CNG trucks in Ohio.

The trucks, which use a ‘slow-fill’ procedure to achieve greater engine efficiency, carry approximately 50 gallons of CNG. This capacity allows them to run 10 to 12 hours and complete a typical day's waste or recycling collection route, the company says.

A new CNG fueling facility will also be installed at the company's Canal Winchester location to accommodate the 55 converted trucks.
