The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) in New Jersey has taken over trash collection for the City of Vineland, bringing on 11 new compressed natural gas (CNG) trash trucks, the Daily Journal reported. The five-year, $13.31 million agreement began on Jan 1.
ACUA purchased the 11 CNG vehicles and two supervisor vehicles at a cost of $3.5 million, and they’ll be dedicated for use in Vineland, according to a release from the authority. The vehicles will be stationed and maintained at the Cumberland County Improvement Authority (CCIA).
The city previously outsourced its trash collection to another provider, the Daily Journal reported.
