A Cleaner Future
As a vehicle fuel, compressed natural gas burns cleaner and with a lower greenhouse gas impact as compared to diesel fuel. We have purchased three heavy-duty natural gas vehicles—a rear loader, an automated side loader, and a front loader—for our Burlington, Vermont fleet.
We were fortunate to receive grant funding to support these purchases through the Federal Environmental protection Agency under the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act. We will install Vermont’s second natural gas fueling station at our Williston facility. We hope to duplicate this effort at five additional locations throughout New England and New York.
