Advanced Disposal Begins Service in Georgia with New CNG Trucks
Advanced Disposal will begin providing residential garbage and yard waste collection services to the former incorporated Macon, Georgia, communities on January 4, 2016. Advanced Disposal will provide weekly garbage and yard waste service to over 25,000 homes within the former Macon city limits with 18 trucks, 13 of which are fueled by cleaner burning CNG.
Privatization continues to grow across the U.S., as municipalities realize the potential benefits of a public-private partnership. These benefits can include cost savings, quality of service, management efficiency and risk mitigation. In many cases, a solid waste public-private partnership such as between Advanced Disposal and Macon-Bibb County can stabilize government tax rates.
“We provide our municipal clients with solutions to their needs that includes cost containment, service guarantees, risk protection, environmental stewardship and economic sustainability,” stated Charlie Gray, Advanced Disposal’s region vice president.
Advanced Disposal has also invested locally in Macon-Bibb County this September, building a $1.6 million CNG fueling station at its hauling facility.
“We’re proud of the fact that as of the end of 2015, approximately 15 percent of our company-wide fleet is running on CNG,” said Advanced Disposal CEO Richard Burke. “We continue to invest in CNG to not only keep our fleet running cleaner and to create a more sustainable Earth, but this cleaner fuel source also reduces operations costs thereby enhancing stakeholder returns.”
