JACKSONVILLE, FL–April 30, 2015— Waste Pro has opened a new state-of-the-art compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling facility in Jacksonville, FL.  The grand opening was marked with a ribbon cutting ceremony held on April 23rd, with Jacksonville Council members John Crescimbeni and Matt Schellenberg, along with other City staff, in attendance

The new fueling facility has the capacity to time-fill more than 45 service vehicles simultaneously at the Strickland Street Regional Operations Center.  This facility marks the fifth in Waste Pro’s southeastern footprint, with the other facilities also located in Florida at Ft. Pierce, Palm Coast, Daytona, and Pompano.

The $2 million investment ($23 million total investment in the complex) is part of Waste Pro’s transition to cleaner, more abundant domestic sources of fuel that began in 2012. Waste Pro’s total investment in CNG fueling technology and equipment has exceeded $50 million thus far, with an additional facility slated to open in Sanford, FL later this year.

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