Athens Services’ environmentally friendly fleet of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) trucks allows us to do our jobs in the cleanest, quietest and most environmentally conscious way possible. Our CNG trucks are a breath of fresh air for those who live, work, and play in the cities we service.
We continue to invest in converting our fleet to vehicles with alternative fuel applications. We believe it is the right choice for the health of our customers, our employees and the environment. Currently, the cities of Redondo Beach and Altadena are serviced ONLY by CNG collection vehicles. And, our entire fleet of street-sweeping trucks is powered by alternative fuels.
CNG is a fossil fuel substitute for regular gasoline, diesel or propane. It is a safer, more environmentally clean, and less expensive alternative.
By utilizing clean-fuel trucks, Athens will help California meet its goal of reducing current greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020, as established under Assembly Bill 32.
