The move to a green fleet using CNG vehicles is part of Emterra’s drive to prove that green fleets can be economically viable. Emterra’s Winnipeg fleet of approximately 60 garbage collection vehicles represents the largest CNG waste fleet globally. A pipeline-fed time-fed fuelling station will support waste truck fuelling at Emterra’s facility.
The 5-7 year contract with the City of Winnipeg (commencing October 1) is for the collection of a range of waste materials – residential (including multi-unit buildings) and small business recyclable material, garbage, organic yard waste and bulk items.
The win for Emterra and the City of Winnipeg extends into the community as Emterra is currently seeking to employ hundreds locally to launch the facility. From management positions to driving jobs, the City and surrounding area will benefit from job opportunities Emterra is looking to fill locally. (See: http://www.emterra.ca/
Paulina Leung, Emterra’s Business Development Manager, proudly states that the Company is just getting started and plans to announce more CNG waste collection truck fleets destined for the road in Western Canada in the coming months.
