Advanced Disposal reports the opening of its seventh compressed natural gas fueling station – a TruStar Energy facility in Macon, Ga. The station currently supports 15 CNG-fueled trucks – Peterbilt vehicles with Heil bodies. updated October 19
Advanced Disposal continues to add CNG trucks.
“This number will increase as the company replaces retiring diesel trucks once their useful life has expired,” states a release.
“Approximately 12% of our collection routes run on CNG,” Advanced Disposal CEO Richard Burke said in a release, adding, “We will increase our CNG fleet to 15% by the end of 2015.”
The Macon CNG station was a $1.6 million investment and according to the Advanced Disposal announcement is the only multi-truck CNG station in the metro area. About a fourth of Advanced Disposal’s collection routes in the Macon area run on CNG.
The Macon station has twin 200-horsepower ANGI Energy-packaged compressors with 40 time-fill hoses and provision for 40 more, says Advanced Disposal procurement VP Chad Mark.
Advanced Disposal’s sixth CNG station, also built by TruStar, opened last year in Detroit (F&F, June 3, 2014).
