Waste Management has been a pioneer in the use of natural gas, already operating more than 1,400 compressed natural gas vehicles. CNG makes a lot of sense for municipal refuse fleets. The quieter engines and cleaner emissions are welcome in residential areas. WM even has “trash to gas” facilities, where landfill methane can be turned into natural gas fuel for the vehicles. This year, natural gas vehicles represent 80 percent of annual new truck purchases and will for the next five years. WM is also building natural gas fueling stations. It currently has 31 with another 17 either in operation or under construction by the end of 2012.

A growing number of fleets are testing or making large-scale deployments of natural gas powered vehicles.
