Waste Management Implements New Eco-friendly Fleet of Trucks

Waste Management recently implemented 24 new compressed natural gas, or CNG, trucks into their fleet, replacing the old diesel models.

Calcasieu Parish originally had 42 diesel trucks running routes throughout the parish. Just one of those trucks burns over 8,000 gallons of diesel in a year. Altogether, that’s over 336,000 gallons of diesel fuel burned one year’s time.
