30 New Way Rear Loaders Aid Kansas City, Missouri’s New Citywide Residential Waste Collection Program
Scranton, IA - Kansas City, Missouri’s (KCMO) Solid Waste Division recently received delivery of 30 New Way 25-cubic-yard Cobra Magnum rear-loader refuse trucks. KCMO’s new residential waste collection program officially began on May 1st and will save local taxpayers upwards of $20 million over the next decade. Each of the city’s New Way rear-loaders runs on compressed natural gas (CNG) instead of conventional diesel fuel.
CNG fueling systems offer cost-effective fuel savings and are more environmentally sustainable, “They’re all clean-energy trucks that’ll really help on red alert ozone days,” said Michael Shaw, manager of KCMO’s Solid Waste Division. “The trucks also reduce particulate matter and improve air quality.”
An added benefit is that CNG-powered vehicles run quieter, a plus since that city residents are now being asked to have their trash out to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on pickup day.
“We are proud of the opportunity to provide the equipment for Kansas City’s new 160,000 home solid waste collection program,” said Don Ross, VP of Sales & Marketing for New Way Trucks. “Their fleet of New Way Cobra Magnum rear loaders is well-equipped to handle the demands of Kansas City’s new residential waste collection program for years to come.”
New Way would like to thank Elliott Equipment, and it’s authorized distributor team in Grandview, Missouri, for developing this key partnership with the City and its Solid Waste Division.
