TruStar Energy announced the grand opening of a CNG fueling station for Rogue Disposal & Recycling. The CNG fueling station, which will be known as "Rogue Green Fuels, LLC", is located at 1125 Anthony Way in White City, OR, and will serve both the solid waste service provider's growing CNG- fueled fleet, as well as the public.
"We live in a region where the quality of the air we breathe is an everyday concern for our citizens. We believe that clean air is critical to our communities' long-term sustainability, quality of life and economic success. To that end, we are proud to be part of an effort to bring greater access to cleaner burning transportation fuels like compressed natural gas to the Rogue Valley," said Lee Fortier, engineering manager, Rogue Disposal. "We are pleased to be partnering with TruStar Energy on this new CNG station."
The company will be using the station to fuel their existing CNG fleet, and anticipates opening their station to the public this fall. This will be one of only three publicly accessible CNG fueling stations along a 400-mile stretch of the I-5 corridor, between Chico, California and Eugene, Oregon.
"Building out the CNG fueling infrastructure is a vital piece of the puzzle to making cleaner alternative fuels available to leading companies, such as Rogue Disposal. This station makes both financial and environmental sense for the company," said Scott Edelbach, General Manager of TruStar Energy. "TruStar Energy is proud to support Rogue Disposal's goals to reduce its carbon footprint and bring CNG to the Rogue Valley."
Rogue has eight CNG-fueled recycling and waste collection trucks in its fleet of 36 vehicles, with three more on order currently. The company plans to complete a total conversion of the fleet over the next eight years.
Part of the Rogue Valley community since 1938, Rogue Disposal provides solid waste and recycling collection for residential, commercial and industrial customers; as well as providing medical waste collection and on-site confidential document destruction.
