SEAL BEACH, CA – Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has contracted with Southeast U.S. solid waste collection, recycling, and disposal company Waste Pro USA to build, operate, and maintain a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station on Waste Pro property in Fort Pierce, Fla. The private time-fill fueling facility will support the waste collection and disposal company's new fleet of CNG-powered trash trucks.

Waste Pro recently announced its investment of $100 million for vehicles and fueling stations to transition a portion of its fleet from diesel fuel to compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel. The investment includes planned construction by Clean Energy of natural gas fueling facilities in the South.

Development of the Waste Pro CNG station at Fort Pierce has been permitted, with its opening projected for early third quarter of 2012. In Phase One of its CNG transition effort, Waste Pro expects to deploy 150 heavy-duty waste collection and recycling trucks to serve residential and commercial customers.

Waste Pro operates a fleet of 1,400 trucks in seven southeastern states: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina, Louisiana and Mississippi, and serves more than 1.8 million customers in 70 locations.
