New Jersey’s Air & Gas Technologies is talking up a multi-year agreement with Suburban Disposal Services to design, build, and maintain a new compressed natural gas fueling station at Suburban Disposal’s headquarters in Fairfield, N.J.
The purchase of trucks for the project is supported by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding via the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program (F&F, September 7, 2009).
The AGT-built station will support a new Suburban fleet of CNG-powered refuse and recycling trucks, serving commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers within a 75-mile radius of Fairfield in northern and central regions New Jersey.
The total fleet is projected to use the equivalent of approximately 1.1 million gallons of fuel annually.

The company has taken delivery of seven Autocar trucks with McNeilus bodies from the Cambria Truck Center in Edison, N.J., and is to receive seven more, says Cambia’s Art Petrocco.
Development of the new CNG station began in April 2012, and completion is scheduled by the end of July. Suburban will add CNG truck fueling capacity “as needed to match the growth of their business,” AGT says.
“Our company is committed to acquiring and deploying fleets comprised of CNG-powered trucks,” Suburban VP Kerry Roselle says in AGT’s announcement. “Together with many of our refuse and recycling service customers, we are anxious to secure the cost-saving and clean-air benefits offered by natural gas.”
“With the availability of new OEM natural gas powered trucks from several major manufacturers, independent regional refuse and recycling operators are deploying natural gas fleets in increasing numbers,” said AGT president Vincent Tomasso. “Their goals include conserving costs, adding fuel diversity, curtailing harmful emissions, and reducing America’s dependence on imported oil.
“We commend Suburban Disposal for its pace-setting commitment to powering its truck fleet with natural gas fuel.”
Air & Gas Technologies is celebrating its seventeenth year in business, and says it’s the leading privately held regional provider of natural gas infrastructure products and services in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The firm designs, builds and maintains natural gas fueling stations, and has done so for more than 100 businesses, government and educational institutions.
