Clean Natural Gas

We have made the commitment at All American Waste 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 a public access CNG fueling station in Hartford, CT with the collaboration of leading CNG fueling company Clean Energy.

Moving to CNG helps the three largest challenges the country faces:

Why?

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.

    CNG has many benefits for use in vehicles economically and environmentally:

  • It is 98% domestic product
  • Produced here, distributed here = jobs here
  • Much more predictable source / less political risk source
  • Reduces dependence on foreign oil
  • 30% less greenhouse gas emissions
  • 85% less nitrogen oxide emissions
  • 90% less soot
  • 70-90% less carbon monoxide emissions
  • Trash trucks powered by CNG are 90% quieter than diesel burning trucks.
  • Public access CNG Fueling Station
  • In 2012 the World Health Organization (WHO) added diesel exhaust to it's list of known carcinogens
