Republic deploys 53 CNG waste and recycling trucks in Charleston area
17 October 2013
Waste and recycling company Republic Services, Inc. (earlier post) has deployed 53 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) solid waste and recycling trucks to serve customers throughout the Charleston, SC, metro area. The new CNG fleet will replace older diesel powered trucks.
Republic installed a natural gas fueling station to support its new fleet of CNG powered trucks in Charleston. Natural gas fueling stations enable CNG trucks to fuel during non-peak hours, which has the added benefit of reduced energy consumption during the refueling process.
Republic operates a fleet of more than 1,400 CNG vehicles and 26 natural gas fueling stations nationwide. Approximately 50% of all Republic vehicles purchased in 2013 are powered by the domestic fuel source.
