Alternative Fuels

New Way Trucks leads the refuse industry in environmentally sustainable options for our customers. New Way is further along in battery-electric vehicle (BEV) refuse applications than any other body manufacturer. We have more BEVs in service today than any of our competitors, and these New Way BEVs are working and on the route every day.

New Way Cobra narrow body rear-loader
This New Way Cobra narrow body rear-loader was featured in the Battle Motors booth at Waste Expo 2022. The 16yd³ unit is currently part of Battle’s demonstrator fleet.

New Way has chassis integration projects underway with every major chassis manufacturer in North America. Our Battle Motors (Crane Carrier Company) and Build Your Dreams (BYD) units are on route daily, and development partnerships are underway with Autocar, Mack, and Peterbilt that focus on developing software enhancements, operator assists, and pack system efficiencies to help maximize battery life and make the collection operations more intuitive for electric vehicle applications. Several more New Way BEV refuse collection vehicles are on order for private haulers and municipalities across the nation.

New Way Trucks’ First Battery-Electric Vehicle was a rear-load New Way Viper
New Way delivered its first BEV in 2018 to longtime customer Recology: King’s County in Seattle.

In addition, a fair portion of all New Way refuse trucks are built to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). Larger municipalities and private waste haulers of all sizes have made long-term commitments to convert their entire fleets to either BEV or CNG trucks. New Way is well-equipped to help meet the sustainability goals which municipalities and private haulers have implemented.

New Way is a certified installer for all leading providers of CNG fuel systems including Hexagon Agility and Momentum Fuel Technologies. There are numerous options for mounting CNG fuel systems. These include back-of-cab mounts, tailgate mounts, frame rail/side mounts, roof mounts, and custom hybrid designs to accommodate unique customer challenges. New Way engineers carefully analyze each chassis and situation to determine the ideal placement for each CNG fuel system.

New Way Trucks is proud to help drive the industry forward by manufacturing environmentally sustainable refuse equipment for our customers. As a leader and steward of innovation in refuse truck body manufacturing, it is up to us to forge a new way forward that includes an emphasis on sustainability. We have played a major role in affecting positive, sustainable change for our customers and the public they serve on their routes.
