Waste Pro’s CNG Facility Honored with Golden Hammer Award December 19, 2016 FORT PIERCE, FL – Shortly after its opening, Waste Pro’s Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling facility in Fort Pierce, FL, was presented with the Mayor’s Golden Hammer Award. The award is presented annually in recognition of residents and business owners in the Fort Pierce area who have made significant construction or rehabilitation improvements to their locations. Waste Pro’s CNG facility officially opened its doors in August of 2013. The first of its kind in the area, the facility boasts more than twenty thousand square feet of administrative and operational space, spanning approximately seven acres. Able to fuel eighty CNG vehicles at full capacity simultaneously, the facility is currently providing refueling for Waste Pro’s CNG fleet of more than 70 solid waste and recycling vehicles, in addition to the ability to refuel compatible municipal vehicles. The $15 million project was part of the first phase of Waste Pro’s $100 million investment towards the transition to CNG fueling in 2011. Additional Florida facilities in Jacksonville, Daytona, and Palm Coast, have already been completed with an additional location in Sanford, FL slated for completion in early 2017. “This facility is a great source of pride for Waste Pro and we feel honored to have this level of environmental commitment recognized by Mayor Hudson,” said Waste Pro Regional Vice President, Russell Mackie. Since making the commitment to transition to CNG fueling, Waste Pro has invested nearly $65 million in the fueling infrastructure and operates more than 200 CNG collection vehicles throughout its footprint. Additionally, Waste Pro operates one of the only public access retail fueling station in the Palm Coast, FL area.
