Waste Pro Recognized for Eco-Friendly Operations

The Southern Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership recognized Waste Pro as one of 28 Clean Fleet Leaders who reduced traditional fuel consumption “through the use of alternative fuels, fuel-saving technologies, and innovative transportation programs.”

During an awards ceremony in July, New Orleans Division Manager Jesse Murphy received a certificate honoring Waste Pro as a 2017 Clean Fleet Leader. In 2011, Waste Pro invested $100 million in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered collection and recycling trucks, which provide an environmentally-friendly alternative to diesel fuel by reducing emissions to improve air quality. Since then, Waste Pro has opened seven CNG fueling stations and added more than 300 CNG trucks to its fleet.

The Southern Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership is a part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Coalition, which “collaborates with federal agencies, fuel providers, industry associations, equipment manufacturers, and large companies whose vehicle fleets operate in multiple states.”
