Waste Management, an ABC member, unveiled its newest compressed natural gas-powered disposal trucks on Wednesday that will service Calcasieu and Cameron parishes and residential and commercial customers in Vinton, Westlake and Iowa, La., in hopes of providing cleaner air and quieter streets. The conversion comes on the heels of the larger shift to natural gas production and purification in the Lake Area. The new CNG fleet in Southwest Louisiana is part of WM’s corporate goal of having 80 percent of its vehicles converted to alternative fuels by 2020. With the conversions in Southwest Louisiana, Waste Management has switched more than 7,600 service vehicles to alternative fuels, now the largest alternative fuel waste services fleet on the continent.
