Republic Services Waste Truck Fleets in Calif. to Run on LNG

July 06, 2010

SEAL BEACH, CA - Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has contracted with Republic Services to deliver LNG fuel to three Republic divisions in California: Republic Waste Services of Southern California, Consolidated Disposal (Los Angeles County), and Solano Garbage (City of Fairfield) through April 2015.

Together, they provide waste collection and recycling services to residents and businesses in 55 California cities and communities. The LNG fuel requirement to support these operations is expected to exceed 3.5 million LNG gallons annually.

"Republic is the nation's second largest solid waste company and we are delighted to provide LNG fueling services to its expanding, natural gas-powered trash truck fleets in California," Andrew Littlefair, Clean Energy president and CEO. "This is Clean Energy's first large-scale LNG fuel delivery and station monitoring agreement with Republic that encompasses multiple sites."

"Republic operates and maintains one of the largest private fleets in the country," said Jim O'Connor, chairman and CEO of Republic. "Dedicating 20 percent of our 2010 new truck orders to NGVs definitely makes a statement about our commitment to protecting the environment."
