Pellitteri Waste Deploys CNG Trucks in Wisconsin
Pellitteri Waste Systems, a waste hauler servicing Madison, Wisconsin, has expanded its fleet of trucks to include four CNG vehicles to take advantage of domestic natural gas and the growing number of CNG stations in the region.
The new trucks will fill up with clean-burning RNG produced at the Dane County landfill. The renewable natural gas station is part of Dane County’s aggressive conversion to natural gas that will see 75 percent of the county’s fleet vehicles running on the environmentally-friendly fuel by the end of the year.
“Being a good environmental steward is woven into our DNA at Pellitteri,” said Tim Pellitteri, owner of Pellitteri Waste Systems. “We see CNG trucks as a strategic decision to take care of our planet.”
Pellitteri bought their first CNG refuse truck last year and its lower exhaust emissions and quieter running engines have encouraged them to add more. The trucks were purchased locally at Bruce Municipal Equipment in Menomonee Falls.
