Waste Management of Southern California Opens New CNG Fueling Station in Chino
Waste Management of Southern California unveiled a new CNG fueling station in Chino that will be publicly accessible to NGV operators in the region. The public fueling station will refuel Waste Management’s local fleet and sell CNG to commercial fleets and retail consumers with CNG vehicles. The company now operates 24 CNG trucks in the City of Chino and plans to replace the few remaining diesel trucks later this year, making its entire fleet serving in the City of Chino powered by natural gas.
“We are pleased with the strong commitment Waste Management has demonstrated toward cleaner air,” said City of Chino Mayor and Vice Chairman of the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s Governing Board Dennis Yates. “By increasing accessibility to cleaner burning compressed natural gas fuel to fleets in Chino and beyond, we are taking positive steps to protect Southern California’s air quality as we work toward achieving greater sustainability.”
In North America, Waste Management currently operates the largest fleet of heavy-duty natural gas trucks in the waste industry with more than 4,000 natural gas trucks, including more than 1,100 in Southern California.
