Gresham Sanitary Services Utilizes New Truck Fueled By Natural Gas

Gresham Sanitary Service (GSS) is proud to announce the use of a new truck fueled by compressed natural gas that will be utilized in their commercial hauling division.

Gresham Sanitary Service has been serving Oregon recycling and trash customers since 1948, GSS has always been committed to using modern efficiency based technology. The new truck utilizes GPS, and the latest in telephone, telecommunications, and computer-based equipment, however GSS still remains committed to its core purpose, to professionally and individually meet the needs of their customers in an honest, fair and cost effective manner.

Gresham Sanitary has been recognized as the first trash hauler in the state of Oregon to have a truck using an environmentally friendly alternative to diesel fuel. Running the trucks on compressed natural gas is a much more environmentally clean alternative. Today’s trends are moving towards more eco-friendly or green solutions, and Gresham Sanitary Service is leading the trend. This effort towards eliminating harmful fossil fuels helps the community reach its sustainability goals.

The new compressed natural gas truck is the first step in growing GSS’s entire fleet of disposal trucks to this more sustainable and environmentally friendly fuel source.
