Clean Energy Fuels Corp., a natural gas company, is working with Central Jersey Waste & Recycling Inc. to build and operate a new fuel station. The firm provides waste hauling and recycling services in central New Jersey, and through the contract with Clean Energy, it will be the first waste and recycling firm to convert to natural gas fuel in the state.
The five-year contract awarded to Clean Energy includes a five-year option for compressed natural gas fueling services for Central Jersey Waste. The firm will fund some of its time-fill fueling station and 20 natural gas trucks through Clean Energy Finance.
“We are pleased to provide these services for Central Jersey Waste that will in turn benefit the state of New Jersey by beginning to use cleaner, cheaper natural gas fuel for waste and recycling hauling," says James Harger, Clean Energy's senior vice president.
Central Jersey Waste will also work with Clean Energy to convert its fleet of trucks from diesel fuel to clean-burning natural gas.
