Waste Management adds natural gas trucks, station in Jackson


The Associated Press



JACKSON -- Waste Management has opened the company's 50th natural gas fueling station in Jackson. 


Waste Management says the station will service its fleets of natural gas fueled trucks that will run routes in the Jackson area. 


Eric Woods, vice president of fleet supply chain for Waste Management, says the station is part of its plan to convert its heavy-duty collection fleet to natural gas. 


Woods says the conversion makes good business sense because of the significant maintenance and diesel fuel costs savings. 


Waste Management has 32,000 collection and support vehicles. 


Woods says compressed natural gas fuel will also be made available to Jackson municipalities, businesses and the public through the new station.
