Waste Management of New Mexico opened up its new compressed natural gas fueling station in Rio Rancho Monday.
It spent $10.8 million to build the station and buy 31 new trucks that will run on cleaner-burning natural gas.
Waste Management says the new truck emits close to zero emissions and cuts down on greenhouse gas.
“The CNG fueling station is an investment. It’s an investment in all the communities we serve in this area and also the state,” said Dan Darnell of Waste Management Public Sections Solutions.
You will be seeing the new trucks in Rio Rancho, Los Ranchos, Bernalillo County and surrounding areas.
