  • City of Ogden, Utah to purchase 10 CNG garbage trucks

    The city has also purchased 10 garbage trucks fueled by compressed natural gas to reduce emissions and save money.

    The CNG garbage trucks were acquired through a $2 million lease/purchase agreement and replace 10 vehicles that run on diesel fuel. The city will auction off the diesel trucks.

    It is estimated that the CNG trucks will save the city about $89,000 annually at current fuel prices.

    The CNG trucks are refueled at a filling station built at the city's public works building at 29th Street and Wall Avenue. The station has a low-pressure system that requires the trucks to be hooked into a natural gas line and left overnight for refueling.
