Progressive Waste Solutions

 

Background and Needs

progressive wasteProgressive Waste has one of Canada’s largest and fastest growing waste and recycling collection fleets of compressed natural gas (CNG) powered vehicles. A recent fleet expansion took place in Brampton, Ontario where 50 CNG refuse haulers were integrated into the company’s current fleet. There are plans for 50 more CNG vehicles in the next three to four years. The project commitment was to have the ability to slow-fill 65 vehicles to be operational in the Fall of 2015.

Progressive contracted with E.T. Environmental as the prime contractor for the delivery of this installation. This posed a requirement for a station designer and integrator with particular expertise in compliance to local codes.
