WCA Waste Corp., a vertically integrated solid-waste services company, says it has continued the process of converting its collection fleet to compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks.
In the first quarter of this year, WCA added 35 CNG front-load trucks to its Houston operations and commenced operation of a CNG fueling station at its Houston South facility in West Houston.
Furthermore, the company says it will be opening a public CNG station at its hauling operation in Gainesville, Fla., during the upcoming second quarter.
“We continue to strive for opportunities to provide sustainable solutions that support our long-term strategy and will continue to deploy automated CNG trucks as a key component of WCA's business plan,” states WCA CEO Bill Caesar.
WCA's update about its CNG efforts was included in an announcement that the company has also completed several acquisitions in its core markets and divested its waste-by-rail business in Ohio and Massachusetts.
