Trillium to Build CNG Station for Los Angeles Waste Hauler
Athens Services, a waste-collection and recycling company based in Los Angeles County, recently selected Love’s Trillium CNG, part of the Love’s Family of Companies, to design, build and maintain a CNG station for its fleet of refuse haulers.
The company operates 229 CNG vehicles in various cities, and Athens Services has committed to converting more of its fleet to alternative fuel vehicles to provide service in the cleanest, quietest and most environmentally friendly manner possible. The partnership with Trillium CNG allows them to provide more service to Los Angeles residents.
“Partnering with Trillium to build a new CNG station was needed for Athens to provide the best service to certain zones in the city of Los Angeles,” said Marty Mitchell, director of maintenance for Athens Services. “The new station will allow our drivers to fuel in the most efficient way and avoid taking vehicles miles away to another fueling facility.”
The private station in Pacoima will provide CNG fuel to approximately 110 Athens Services refuse trucks. Construction is underway, and the station is scheduled to be complete this fall.
Trillium will procure RNG for use with the station. When combined with Cummins near-zero emissions CNG engines, the use of RNG significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Trillium partnered with Athens Services on two other CNG stations in Irwindale and La Puente. Trillium owns 10 CNG stations in California, and operates an additional 31 stations.
