Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has contracted with major Southeast U.S. solid waste collection, recycling and disposal company Waste Pro USA to build, operate and maintain a new compressed natural gas fueling station on Waste Pro property in Fort Pierce, Fla.
Clean Energy Fuels Corp. partnered with Waste Pro USA to build, operate and maintain a new CNG station for Waste Pro in Fort Pierce, Fla.
The private time-fill fueling facility will support the company's new fleet of CNG-powered trash trucks.
Waste Pro recently announced its investment of $100 million for vehicles and fueling stations to transition a portion of its fleet from diesel fuel to CNG fuel. The investment includes planned construction by Clean Energy of natural gas fueling facilities in the South.

In Phase One of its CNG transition effort, Waste Pro expects to deploy 150 heavy-duty waste collection and recycling trucks to serve residential and commercial customers.
"This move will reduce emissions in our operating footprint and potentially provide fueling stations for the cities and counties we serve," says John J. Jennings, president and CEO of Waste Pro, said, "We care about the communities we serve.
Waste Pro operates in seven southeastern states: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi. With more than 2,400 employees and 1,400 trucks, it serves more than 1.8 million customers from 70 operating locations, and maintains more than 140 exclusive municipal contracts and franchises.
