Republic Services, Inc., the second largest domestic non-hazardous solid waste company in the U.S., expanded its fleet of compressed natural gas (CNG) solid waste collection trucks with the addition of 62 such trucks in Broward and Dade counties.
These new CNG trucks will replace the previously used diesel-powered collection trucks. This initiative by the company will accelerate the total number of natural gas vehicles operating in South Florida to 127.
Pollution is a growing concern in today’s world, and keeping that in mind, the company has been taking initiatives to reduce carbon emission. Being one of the renowned operators of a large vocational fleet in South Florida, Republic Services strives to make a positive impact on the environment. The expansion of its CNG truck fleet on Earth Day is symbolic of the company’s efforts.
