Atlas Disposal Makes Investment of Over $5 million in Cleaner Air Technologies

Utah Employer Atlas Disposal purchases New Fleet of 16 Eco-Friendly Natural Gas Refuse Trucks and Installs a New CNG Fueling Station with DC Charging

Salt Lake City, UT — Atlas Disposal has invested over $5 Million in a new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling station and fleet of 16 CNG Refuse Trucks. This new fueling station is located on their property in Salt Lake City off of I-80 and 5600 West and can fill up to 40 refuse trucks simultaneously and includes a public access station for fast filling CNG/RNG at 14 GGE per minute making it the fastest CNG filling station in Salt Lake City.

The station and electric vehicle DC fast charger uses electricity from its on-site 325kW solar canopy array with 400kWH of battery storage that has the peak output capability of 120kW.

The new cleaner running CNG fleet has significantly lower emissions than its diesel counterparts: 50% less fine particulate matter and 90% less carbon monoxide.

“We all share ownership and responsibility for Utah’s air quality. We applaud Atlas for leading its industry by making this significant investment in new clean natural gas refuge trucks to help contribute to a better air quality solution.”
— Kim Frost, executive director at Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR).

“There is no silver bullet to solving Utah’s air quality, but every small change adds to a collective bigger step toward better health, a better economy, and better overall quality of life for all of us. Atlas Disposal is excited to announce a new eco-friendlier fleet of 16 CNG Refuse trucks and a new innovative CNG fueling station that is open to the public. Lowering our emissions is of utmost importance to us as a company and guides our overall operating decisions.”

— Nick Sikich, president at Atlas Disposal.

“I am proud to have this installation and a new fleet of refuse trucks in Utah as they service the entire Wasatch Front. We commend Atlas Disposal for its commitment to clean air in Utah.”
— Craig Wagstaff, Sr. Vice President Western Division at Dominion Energy.
