Natural gas vehicles can arrive any time of day or night to fill up at WCA’ Waste Corporation's first Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station at 5002 SW 41st Blvd. in Gainesville, Florida, now open to the public.
Proud to participate in the environmentally responsible initiative, WCA spokesman Bob Shires cited reduced greenhouse emissions and improved air quality as major benefits associated with CNG usage. Natural gas vehicles show an emissions reduction of approximately 80 percent compared to conventional gasoline-powered vehicles.
“WCA embraces new opportunities and methods to advance our sustainability efforts in the community,” Shires, WCA Regional Vice President, said. “The opening of this CNG station is the next step at ensuring we keep the environment of Central Florida clean and beautiful for future generations.”
The new station can accommodate natural gas vehicles ranging in size from passenger cars to heavy-duty trucks. It accepts all major credit cards and fleet cards.
