DeKalb unveils public natural gas fueling station

By Dionne Kinch, Atlanta Journal Constitution. 

DeKalb County officials in partnership with Atlanta Gas Light recently commemorate the opening of the second county-owned compressed natural gas public fueling station located at the DeKalb County Sanitation Division, Central Transfer Station, 3720 Leroy Scott Dr.

“The new station serves both the public and the county’s growing CNG sanitation fleet, and it uses landfill gas from the county’s own facility as a supply source. Using landfill gas reduces the carbon footprint of the refuse vehicles by 90 percent, and it completes a circle of converting trash to energy that is then used to fuel the same trucks that haul refuse to the landfill,” said Bryan Batson, president of Atlanta Gas Light.

The station comprises two fueling lanes, with three standard capacity and one high capacity fuel dispensers, and is open 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. Monday through Friday.
