Florida-based Waste Pro USA has committed to a $100 million program to develop a network of compressed natural gas (CNG) refuse hauling trucks and the fueling stations to support them. It is working to transform a portion of its fleet from diesel to CNG. As part of that longer term effort, the recycling and disposal company said Clean Energy Fuels Corp. would build and operate a CNG fueling station at Waste Pro's headquarters in Fort Pierce, FL, to support the company's growing fleet. Permits have been obtained, and the facility is scheduled to be in operation by 3Q2012. About 150 heavy-duty CNG-fueled waste collection and recycling trucks are to be deployed to serve residential and commercial customers. Waste Pro operates in 70 locations in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi.
