Idaho Petroleum Reduction Leadership Project
The purpose of the Idaho Petroleum Reduction Leadership Project was to assist with the establishment of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel availability and use in the State of Idaho. Republic Services achieved a significant reduction in diesel fuel by converting a portion of their trash and recycling truck fleet in the Boise area to CNG fuel, as well as installing CNG fueling infrastructure at the company's fleet facilities in Boise and Nampa. The project resulted in the establishment of the first permanent public CNG fueling facilities in Idaho. It also included conducting outreach efforts to encourage other fleet operators and the public in the Boise area to use CNG.
