Refuse Company Rolls Out CNG Trucks in Quebec

By NGT News.

On Monday, representatives from Sani-Estrie Inc., Gaz Metro and its subsidiary Gaz Metro Transport Solutions (GMTS) joined Magog, Quebec, Mayor Vicki May Hamm to announce the arrival of new dump trucks powered exclusively by compressed natural gas (CNG).

The City of Magog has contracted Sani-Estrie to take care of its household waste removal. The Sherbrooke, Quebec-based family business currently boasts nine CNG trucks, five of which will be used for waste collection in Magog.

To facilitate fuel supply, GMTS provided a compression station on Sani-Estrie's Sherbrooke site. The new fleet, now in operation, has been refueling through the Gaz Metro network since July 1.
