Waste Management of Illinois Inc., a provider of comprehensive waste management services, has dedicated what it says is the largest commercial compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facility in Illinois.
The site, located in Stickney, is equipped with 55 ‘slow-fuel’ stations for the company's growing CNG fleet of trucks. The facility also includes a public, easy-access ‘Clean N' Green’ retail station equipped with four ‘fast-fuel’ pumps that can be used by individuals, companies or municipalities operating CNG vehicles, according to Waste Management. The retail facility will be operated by PetroCard.
Waste Management currently operates more than 30 CNG trucks in the Chicago area and says it anticipates to have more than 80 in the area by year-end, making it Illinois' largest commercial CNG refuse truck fleet.
