California City Trash Fleet Goes 100 Percent CNG

The City of Pomona, California, has announced that it has acquired 22 CNG-powered Mack TerraPro low-entry refuse trucks. With this purchase, the Pomona trash fleet is now an alternative fuel vehicle fleet. “The City of Pomona is committed to reducing its environmental footprint,” says Howard Morris, Pomona’s solid waste manager. The city ordered 20 TerraPro CNG side-loaders and two rear-loaders. The trucks, which are built in Macungie, PA, are expected to be delivered in September.
