New CNG Truck and Fueling Center

FT. PIERCE, FL  August 10, 2012—Waste Pro’s first compressed natural gas fueling facility officially opened its doors on August 8th at a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception held at 4100 Prosperity Drive.  The new complex is the first of its kind in the area.

The ceremony included the official ribbon cutting and reception attended by representatives from Waste Pro’s Corporate Office, Clean Energy (designer of the facility), Culpepper & Terpening, Inc. (the engineering firm on the project), and many city and county elected officials.

The facility includes over twenty thousand square feet of administrative and operational space, spanning approximately seven acres.  Able to fuel eighty compressed natural gas vehicles at full capacity simultaneously, the facility is able to service not only Waste Pro trucks, but also compatible vehicles from surrounding municipalities.  The project was completed ahead of schedule, with trucks being placed into service this week.

The $15 million project is one phase of Waste Pro’s $100 million total investment towards the transition to the environmentally friendly and domestically available CNG fuel, which was announced late last year.

Waste Pro’s Ft. Pierce fleet will include 80 CNG trucks, which was part of an initial order of 150 Mack waste collection and recycling trucks from Nextran Corporation.  Partnering with Waste Pro in this state of the art facility was Clean Energy, the largest provider of natural gas fuel and facilities in this country, which assisted with the design and construction of the Fort Pierce complex.

“This is a very exciting day for Waste Pro and for the City of Ft. Pierce.  The CNG trucks provide a cleaner and quieter working environment for our employees, their families, and the communities we serve,” said Russell Mackie, Waste Pro Regional Vice President.  Mackie also pointed out the abundance of natural gas in the United States, along with the benefit to the environment, as the main factors that made this decision a “no-brainer”.  “It is a part of our continued commitment to an environmentally friendly means of operating,” Mackie stated.

 L to R:  Robert Clarke (Driver), Phillip Crossly     (Division Manager), Gevauhn Johnson, Blake Moore (Mechanic), Mike Eads     (Operations Manager), and Lennard Brown (Driver).

COLUMBUS, MS May 8th, 2012 -  On May 4th, roll off driver for Mississippi Industrial Waste, a Waste Pro Company, Gevauhn Johnson received a Franklin Award (a crisp $100 dollar bill) for going above and beyond his job requirements.  Gevauhn assisted a commercial customer with their dumpster that had been filled beyond capacity.  Not only did Gevauhn remove the excess garbage surrounding the dumpster, along with emptying the dumpster, but he did it with a smile and a positive attitude.  For his dedication to customer service, Division Manager, Phillip Crossly gave Gevauhn a Franklin Award.  The Franklin Award was created by Waste Pro President and CEO, John Jennings, and is an impromptu gift, in recognition of an employee’s exceptional work ethic and attitude.

The following email was sent to the local office, prompting this award:

The purpose of this email is to commend Gevauhn for his exemplary job this morning at the Palmer Home Thrift Store in Starkville.  When we arrived at work our dumpster had been overloaded with bins and bags of trash.  This trash was brought after we closed for business yesterday.  There were also boxes, bins and bags of garbage beside the dumpster.  When Gevauhn arrived I asked him if I needed to get some of the garbage off of the top of the dumpster.  He said that he would be glad to do it for us.  He climbed on the side of the dumpster and removed the bins and bags of garbage.  There was even some used cat litter mixed in with the garbage.  He removed enough of the garbage so that his net would go over the top of it.  I realize that is not in his job description.  It is really our responsibility to remove the excess garbage from the top.  Please express to him our appreciation for doing this for us.  We realize that he went way above the responsibilities of his job.  We wanted to let you know what an outstanding employee you have in Gevauhn.

 Sincerely,

Kizzie Outlaw, Manager
