Waste Management has more than 3,000 heavy-duty natural gas trucks in North American cities today and plans to ultimately convert its entire fleet of 18,000 collection vehicles to natural gas operation. The company is on target to purchase 800 natural gas trucks per year, about 90% of its new truck purchases. Waste Management has 58 natural gas fueling stations across North America, 19 of which are publicly accessible. By 2020, the company expects its efforts to have saved 350 million gallons of fuel, about 3.5 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and $1 billion in operational costs.
