Refuse Operators Are Cleaning up with Natural Gas Vehicles!

Waste Management, Republic Services, Groot Industries, Choice Environmental, Specialty Solid Waste,  New York City Sanitation, GreenScapes, Unity Disposal, City of Richmond VA:  These are a just a few of the hundreds of refuse operations across the country that are using natural gas powered collection/recycling, roll-off and transfer trucks to get the job done – every day.

Why?

Because natural gas refuse trucks are just as reliable and powerful as diesel trucks. They’re cleaner, quieter and cost about 30-50% less to operate!

Refuse operations of all sizes have made the move to NGVs. Learn how you can do the same at
