Waste Pro Awards Clean Energy Contract for Florida CNG Stations
Waste Pro USA announced the award of a construction agreement to Clean Energy to design and build CNG stations at their Sanford and Sarasota, Florida properties. The Sanford CNG Station will accommodate 90 CNG-powered service vehicles and the Sarasota station will be capable of fueling 30 CNG vehicles.
Waste Pro is also working with Clean Energy to expand its current CNG Station in Pompano, Florida, from a capacity 30 vehicles to 50 vehicles.
The investment continues to further Waste Pro’s goal set in 2012 to transition the majority of the fleet of collection trucks from diesel fuel to cleaner burning CNG. These two new CNG stations will increase the total number of CNG stations located throughout Waste Pro’s southeastern footprint to a total of seven.
“This move will dramatically reduce emissions in our operating footprint and potentially provide fueling stations for the cities and counties we serve,” said John J. Jennings, President and CEO of Waste Pro USA.
Clean Energy currently operates and maintains a majority of Waste Pro’s CNG stations and will be expanding their contract to cover all Waste Pro stations beginning in 2016.
Serving more than two million residential and commercial customers from over 75 operating locations, Waste Pro is headquartered in Longwood, Florida, and maintains more than 230 exclusive municipal contracts and franchises.
