Going Green LogoRobinson Waste Services is an environmentally conscious waste solutions provider and has implemented many green initiatives into our day-to-day operations, as well as our recycling service offerings to the communities and businesses we service. Our goal is to operate as efficiently as possible to reduce our environmental impact. From comprehensive recycling services to clean running natural gas trucks, Robinson Waste has combined going green with unmatched service.

 

Clean Running Natural Gas Trucks

 

Robinson Waste is now integrating clean-running Compressed Natural Gas trucks into various fleet operations.  With natural trucks, we improve air quality, reduce noise, and reduce our dependency on foreign oil.  The potential benefits of natural gas versus diesel based on the inherently cleaner-burning characteristics of natural gas provide the following:

 

  • Produce half the particulate matter of average diesel vehicles
  • Significantly reduce carbon monoxide emissions
  • Reduce nitrogen oxide and volatile organic hydrocarbon emissions by 50% or more
  • Potentially reduce carbon dioxide emissions 25% depending on the source of the natural gas
  • Drastically reduce toxic and carcinogenic pollutants
