Two CNG pumps — one for buses and another for cars and trucks — are open to the public at the city’s solid waste management facility at 11501 N Portland. The grand opening was Wednesday afternoon.
The $2.8 million facility also boasts 58 more CNG hoses behind the fence, allowing the solid waste department to fuel its growing fleet of trash trucks without having to wait in line at a public fueling station.
Superintendent Jim Linn said the department has 23 CNG trash trucks, with about a dozen more on order.
The city of Tulsa opened its first CNG fueling station in September 2012. Tulsa's fleet also includes more than 41 CNG vehicles and about 100 hybrids out of a total fleet of nearly 2,500, according to reports.
