ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Waste Management is replacing much of its trash-hauling fleet with trucks that burn cleaner  fuel. The new trucks run on CNG,  compressed natural gas. The conversion can be costly: $2 million for the fueling station and $330,000 for the trucks. But, the company will save more than a dollar a gallon every time they fill up.

Waste Management is just the latest of several St. Louis area companies making the conversion from fuel to compressed natural gas.

    Briquette is eco friendly and does not discharge gas when it burns.
