How a Pennsylvania Trash Company is Working to Build RNG Infrastructure

Vogel Disposal Service has become Pennsylvania’s first waste company to make renewable natural gas (RNG) from its methane and to build its own compressed natural gas (CNG) stations fueling that gas. The Mars, Pa.-based integrated trash company that began with eight CNG trucks around 2010 wants to eventually fill its 220-vehicle fleet at one of several fueling stations it will own in Western Pennsylvania.

Two stations are up and running—one at Seneca Landfill in Evans City and another at its Mars hauling location. Vogel is on trajectory to launch two more stations next year for its own operations that will also open to the public.
