First in Fleet – Waste Pro’s Compressed Natural Gas Truck Arrives in Atlanta

February 3, 2012—Waste Pro USA’s first compressed natural gas solid waste collection truck arrived in Atlanta today.  Waste Pro annouced late last year a $100 million investment in transitioning the fleet from diesal fuel to the environmentally friendly and domestically available CNG fuel.

The investment also includes construction of state of the art fueling facilities throughout the South.  Ground breaking for the first facility in Fort Pierce, Florida is scheduled for February 16th, 2012.

“We care about the communities we serve. Our future includes a continued commitment to solar powered facilities, residential and commercial recycling, landfill diversion, and clean air.  This move will dramatically reduce emissions in our operating footprint and potentially provide fueling stations for the cities and counties we serve”, explained John J. Jennings, President and CEO of Waste Pro USA.

Waste Pro’s investment includes an initial order of 150 Mack waste collection and recycling trucks from Nextran Corporation and construction of a multi-million dollar fueling complex in Fort Pierce, Florida.  Waste Pro is partnering with Clean Energy, the largest provider of natural gas fuel and facilities in this country, to design and construct the Fort Pierce complex.

The first truck participated in the dedication of a PS Energy/Clean Energy Lithonia, Georgia Fueling Complex Grand Opening.

Waste Pro is one of this country’s fastest growing privately owned solid waste collection, recycling, processing and disposal companies operating in seven southeastern states.  Serving more than 1.8 million customers from 500 operating locations, Waste Pro USA is headquartered in Longwood, Florida and maintains more than 250 exclusive municipal contracts and franchises.
