Solid Waste will be converting it total fleet over the next 8 years. Garbage trucks will have the largest impact on this conversion as they are the largest user of diesel for the City, according to city documents.

One of the vehicles is a front load refuse truck, while the other three will side load refuse trucks. All will be supplied by Faris Machinery Company.

These trucks have a 10-month delivery time, allowing the City to install a fueling and maintenance facility for CNG vehicles.
