Air Quality Director Participates in CNG Ribbon Cutting

Earlier this month, Waste Management of Louisville celebrated the debut of the city’s first public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) station at the company’s Grade Lane facility. Division for Air Quality Director John Lyons joined Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and other local government, civic, business and sustainability leaders to mark the milestone.

Waste Management is embracing clean fuel technology across North America and making significant progress on its sustainability goals to reduce emissions by 15 percent and increase the fuel efficiency of its fleet by 15 percent by the year 2020.  By replacing its heavy-duty vehicle fleet with cleaner-burning CNG trucks, Waste Management is reducing toxic diesel emissions and improving air quality in Kentucky.
