The CNG trucks replace older diesel-powered trucks, and bring the total number of natural gas vehicles operated by Republic Services in Oregon to 35. The vehicles produce less carbon emissions than diesel-powered vehicles, in addition to being far quieter.

Republic’s Wilsonville location serves Wilsonville, West Linn, Sherwood, Tualatin, Lake Oswego, Oregon City and parts of Portland. The company hopes eventually to convert its entire 58-vehicle Wilsonville fleet to CNG.SPOKESMAN PHOTO: JAKE BARTMAN - Wilsonville Mayor Tim Knapp said that he appreciated Republic's sustainability efforts before the ribbon cutting April 15.SPOKESMAN PHOTO: JAKE BARTMAN - The ribbon cutting celebrated the opening of Republic Services' new compressed natural gas fueling station.
