1-800-GOT-JUNK? launches biodiesel test program
Vancouver, British Columbia – Isuzu Commercial Truck of America has announced that the garbage removal service 1-800-GOT-JUNK? will be the first fleet to test biodiesel fuel in its trucks. For six months, ten trucks will operate on the fuel in various climate zones across Canada and the U.S.
The companies anticipate making 1-800-GOT-JUNK? the first Isuzu-approved fleet to switch exclusively to biodiesel; the company has more than 1,000 Isuzu N-Series and GMC W-Series trucks in its fleet.
The first biodiesel truck in the fleet was unveiled last month at the Pacific Economic Summit. “This test will launch our new Green Emissions Program,” says Brian Scuadmore, founder and CEO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK? “We have always had a strong environmental conscience and have prided ourselves on cutting-edge recycling efforts. The growth of our business means it’s time to take environmental initiatives to the next level.”
