ADSI Starts with Five McNeilus Macks, Plans for 170 More
Virginia-based American Disposal Services, Inc. has deployed two new CNG-fueled Mack refuse trucks with McNeilus bodies, expects three more this month, and says it will convert its entire fleet of approximately 175 vehicles.
“We knew this was the best choice, it was an easy one to make,” ADSI president Larry Edwards said in a release.
“We’re fully committed and moving ahead,” says ADSI general manager Kevin Edwards. “We are buying them in increments,” he says of the compressed natural gas vehicles. “It’s a long-term plan.”
Two Body Types
The CNG trucks with 8.9-liter ISL G engines from Cummins Westport are the first in Northern Virginia, the company says. ADSI serves customers in Maryland and Washington, D.C. as well as Virginia with a fleet of 140 vehicles, and has a 35-truck operation in Georgia.
ADSI Virginia’s three new front-loaders are Mack MRU633 vehicles and the two rear-loaders are LEU613s. The company gets the cab and chassis directly from Mack, and the bodies directly from McNeilus.
ADSI is fueling at a Clean Energy Fuels station in Sterling, Va., but plans to put in its own facility.
