A Cleaner, Quieter Chilliwack
CNG to fuel local garbage and recycling trucks
Released by Ed Walsh, VP of Operations for BC, Emterra Group
mterra Group will be making a bigger contribution to cleaner air and a healthier environment in British Columbia when it adds 14 new cleaner-burning, compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks to its recycling and garbage fleet in the coming months.
The technologically advanced trucks are made possible through incentive funding of $470,000 provided by FortisBC in recognition of Emterra's commitment to the more sustainable and "greener" collection and transportation of recycling, organics and waste.
"We are very grateful to FortisBC for their support," said Ed Walsh, Emterra's VP of Operations in BC. "Emterra was among the first waste management companies in Canada to invest in compressed natural gas-fuelled trucks as part of our corporate sustainability commitment. With the new order, we'll have more than 70 CNG heavy trucks including the largest fleet in the world operating in a cold weather climate in Winnipeg."
