Time-Fill Fueling for Growing Connecticut Refuse Fleet
TruStar Energy reports the opening of a time-fill compressed natural gas fueling facility for All Waste, Inc. in Hartford, Conn.
“All Waste, one of the largest privately held refuse haulers in the state, is in the midst of a five-year process of converting 60 of its 80 trucks to CNG,” TruStar said.
“An estimated 20 refuse trucks in All Waste’s fleet are currently fueled by CNG, with 10 more scheduled for delivery later this fall.”
Good for Customers, Good for Company
“Choosing to fuel our fleet with domestic, CNG means our trucks are cleaner and quieter,” All Waste operations specialist Derek Alos says in the TruStar announcement.
“This is good for our company and for our customers,” Alos said. “CNG is less volatile than gasoline and has no potential for ground or water contamination in the event of a fuel release. That’s important to us.”
“TruStar Energy built a CNG fueling station that meets their needs today and that can be expanded quickly and efficiently as the company’s CNG fleet grows,” said TruStar president Adam Comora.
Built with Expansion in Mind
The station has a single 200-horsepower compressor and 60 time-fill fueling posts. Resources for a second compressor will allow for quick expansion as All Waste converts more of its fleet to CNG.
In addition to natural gas, the All Waste environmental strategy includes single-stream recycling for both commercial and residential customers, TruStar says, “and using vehicles that collect both refuse and recycling to reduce the number of trucks on the road.”
