TFC Recycling adds five CNG trucks to its fleet

TFC Recycling has added five new compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks to its fleet, making it the largest private owner and operator of clean-running, collection trucks in Virginia. It has also opened Hampton Roads’ first fleet maintenance shop capable of working on CNG vehicles.

In just 1 year, TFC Recycling estimates that its 6 CNG trucks will displace 60,000 gallons of diesel fuel, which helps the environment and reduces the nation’s dependency on foreign oil. Indeed CNG powered vehicles produce just half of the emissions that federal guidelines allow, making TFC Recycling’s collection fleet among the cleanest in Virginia.

TFC Recycling’s new 20 bay maintenance facility is CNG compliant and the first of its kind in Hampton Roads. Mechanics there are certified in alternative fuels, which means they can assist other businesses that are interested in CNG conversion and maintenance.

The six CNG trucks will be visible immediately, providing curbside pickup service in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Suffolk and the Outer Banks.

TFC Recycling is a locally owned and operated recycling and waste removal company, providing residential and commercial recycling and waste removal.
