USA Waste of California has upgraded a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station in the city of Corona in Riverside County to increase the capacity of LNG output and to provide compressed natural gas (CNG) dispensing capabilities. This station supports a waste hauler fleet of 100 plus trucks and has added capacity for public vehicles along the regional goods movement corridor Interstate 1-5 and California highway 91.

Project Benefits

With these upgrades, the LNG fuel output is expected to rise by 50% alone, at the station in Corona, CA. In fact, natural gas vehicles produce 20-30 percent less greenhouse gas emissions than comparable diesel vehicles. WM is familiar with the many benefits of natural gas, with the largest fleet of heavy-duty natural gas trucks in California and throughout North America.
