Waste Management GI Industries says it has deployed 23 new compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles in its Ventura County, Calif., fleet.
The Ventura County (Calif.) Star reports that the refuse and recycling services company was assisted in its efforts by the City of Thousand Oaks Transit Yard and the City of Simi Valley's Bus Transit CNG fueling stations, where the new trucks are fueled.
‘Waste Management is committed to lead the waste industry with advanced technology that will foster a cleaner, greener world,’ Mike Smith, director of operations for Waste Management of Ventura County, told the Venture County Star. ‘The investment in these CNG vehicles is one more step toward improving air quality and meeting the growing needs of the cities and customers we serve.’
Waste Management currently operates more than 1,400 CNG vehicles in North America, the Venture County Star notes.
