Houston-based Waste Management (WM) recently held a ribbon cutting for its new compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Bristol, Pa., that included Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett.
The facility will be used to refuel Waste Management's fleet of CNG trucks in addition to being open to the public.
In a news release issued by his office, Gov. Corbett says, "Pennsylvania's natural gas development is changing the way we live, work and save. The cost of heating our homes and running our cars and trucks is falling while employment and innovation are on the rise."
Corbett adds that Waste Management has the largest CNG fleet of heavy-duty commercial trucks in the country. "They realize the opportunity they have here," Corbett says.
WM has 2,000 CNG trucks deployed across its national fleet.
