City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services – Featured Fleet
Charlotte Solid Waste Services first started using two CNG refuse trucks in October 2010 through funding provided by CCFC and the Carolina Blue Skies & Green Jobs Initiative. In just their first year of use, fuel savings of over $42,000 were realized. Now, there are 10 CNG refuse trucks in the city’s fleet seeing an annual fuel savings of about $15,000 per truck. As a result, they are now working to build their own fueling station in the coming year.
