We have made the commitment at USA Hauling & Recycling to convert our entire fleet of hundreds of diesel burning trucks to clean CNG powered refuse & recycling vehicles. We believe so strongly in CNG technology, we have built public access CNG fueling stations in Hartford, East Windsor and New Haven, CT with the collaboration of leading CNG fueling company Clean Energy.
Moving to CNG helps the three largest challenges the country faces:
1. CNG increases our national security by decreasing our dependence on foreign oil.
2. CNG fosters local economic growth - domestic jobs are created in the capture of CNG and the build out of local infrastructure.
3. It is environmentally far superior to gasoline or diesel. It is far cleaner for the environment.
Katie Dykes, Commissioner of DEEP, speaks at the event and had some kind words for USA, the Antonaccis, and everyone involved in the project.
