WM opens 50th NG fueling station
Waste Management opened its 50th natural gas fueling station, a further move toward the company’s sustainability goals of reducing its fleet emissions and increasing its fuel efficiency. At a ceremony in Jackson, Mississippi, state, county and local officials joined the company to dedicate the fueling station and the fleet, which will service routes in the communities in and around the city.
Of the company’s 50 fueling stations across North America, 18 are accessible to the public. Waste Management owns the stations, purchases the fuel and funds their construction, a strategy that allows the company to secure competitive prices.
The company already operates more than 2,200 alternatively fueled vehicles with the largest fleet of natural gas collection trucks in North America.
